​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.

RIBA Part 1 Bursary

To be eligible to apply for a RIBA Part 1 Bursary, students must currently be enrolled in the first year of a RIBA Part 1 course in the UK. Recipients of these bursaries will receive a maximum of £6,000 distributed in £1,000 termly instalments throughout the second and third years of study. Successful part-time applicants will receive the same maximum amount in payments proportionate to the length of studies.

RIBA Part 2 Bursary

To be eligible to apply for a RIBA Part 2 Bursary, students must be in the process of applying for an RIBA Part 2 course in the UK beginning the following September. Proof of enrolment will be required before the bursary is paid to successful applicants.

Recipients of these bursaries will receive a maximum of £6,000 distributed in £1,000 termly instalments throughout the course of the Part 2. Successful part-time applicants will receive the same maximum amount in payments proportionate to the length of studies.
