The RIBA Research Trust Awards is an annual funding scheme supporting independent architectural research. Applications are welcome from researchers at any stage of their research career.


The awards scheme is open to applicants interested in a wide range of subject matter relevant to the advancement of architecture, and connected arts and sciences, in the United Kingdom.

The RIBA Research Trust Award is for a closely defined piece of architectural research. The committee will support practice-led or academic research, but it will not support course fees and subsistence costs for PhD/MPhil or Masters programmes. Awards are given only to named individuals, not organisations. The maximum grant applicants may apply for is £10,000. A detailed breakdown of costs should be provided in the application form.

Applications are now closed for the 2017 entry. The next application cycle is expected to be launched in March 2018.
