RIBA Part 2 Bursary

The aim of the RIBA Part 2 Bursary scheme is to provide long term financial support to Part 2 architecture students, who demonstrate talent and commitment to their studies and who might struggle to cover the costs of living and course-related expenditure.

Successful applicants studying full time will receive £1,000 per term throughout the course of their Part 2 to a maximum of £6,000. Successful part time applicants will receive the same maximum amount in payments proportionate to the length of their studies.

The 2022 bursaries have been made possible thanks to generous donations by Joanna Lewinski, the Rosenberg Memorial Fund, Donald and Nancy Notley, Margot Auger, and the family of Kenneth Mark.
