​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 to support them in the second year of their Part 2, and the opportunity to be mentored by an architect member of the Wren.
