RIBA Student Hardship Education Fund

​RIBA Student Support Fund

Throughout its history, and in the spirit of the founding principles enshrined in its Charter, the RIBA has always regarded the training of architects and the education of all individuals into the benefits of architecture as being at the core of its existence.

To show its support of excellence and talent in architectural education, for 180 years the Institute has awarded generous scholarships and prestigious prizes to support students and graduates at all levels of the professional training in architecture. For the past 20 years alone, the RIBA has helped approximately 700 students and distributed over £1.3 million.

The RIBA Student Support Fund is a new funding scheme for architecture students enrolled in RIBA Part 1 and 2 courses in the UK who would benefit from financial support. Eligible applicants can apply for a maximum of £3,000 to support themselves.

Applications for 2017-18 have now closed.

This fund runs twice per academic year, in the Autumn and Spring term.
