​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.
