RIBA Wren Insurance Association Scholarships
The RIBA Wren Insurance Association Scholarships were established in March 2013 following a donation by The Wren Insurance Association Limited, an architects’ professional indemnity mutual that comprises 66 of the UK’s leading architectural practices.
The scholarships aim to support outstanding Part 2 students who have the potential to make a significant contribution in the field of architecture. Recipients receive £6,000 each and the opportunity to be mentored by an architect member of the Wren.
Since 2013, the scheme has supported 35 talented recipients who continue to shape the future of the profession.
To be eligible to apply for the next round of applications, applicants must:
- have graduated from a RIBA Part 1 professional qualification course in Architecture in a higher education institution in the UK,
- at the time of application, be enrolled in a RIBA Part 2 professional qualification course in Architecture in a higher education institution in the UK and be starting the final year in September 2020.
