​RIBA Part 1 and 2 Bursaries

The aim of the RIBA Part 1 and Part 2 Bursaries is to provide long-term financial support to architecture students who demonstrate talent and commitment to their studies who might struggle to cover the costs of living and course-related expenditure. The schemes have been made possible by generous donations to the RIBA from the Walter Parker Trust, the Rosenberg Memorial Fund and the Ayyub Malik Trust; as well as monies raised through the RIBA Education Fund.

Applications for 2020

If you have applied for a RIBA Part 1 or Part 2 Bursary this year, please note that owing to staff issues within the Education team there will be some delays in processing these.

We are working hard to process applications and finalise decisions at the earliest opportunity and are grateful for your patience in this matter.

All applicants will be notified of the outcome as soon as decisions are finalised.
