The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today (Thursday 4 November 2021) announced 13 recipients of the 2021 RIBA Part 1 and Part 2 Bursaries.
The RIBA Part 1 and Part 2 Bursary programme provides long-term financial support to students who demonstrate talent and commitment to their studies, and who might struggle to cover the costs of living and study expenses.
The recipients of the 2021 RIBA Part 1 Bursaries are:
- Ilja Anosovs, University of Strathclyde
- Soraya Mcginley, RIBA Studio
- Remigiusz Medrek, Central Saint Martins, UAL
- Stefans Pavlovskis, The Glasgow School of Art
- Radija Raposo, Kingston University
The recipients of the 2021 RIBA Part 2 Bursaries are:
- Sarah Abushamah, Manchester School of Architecture
- Mayce Arebi, Manchester School of Architecture
- Adam Cowan, The Glasgow School of Art (WJ Parker bursary)
- Ellisse Dixon, University of Cambridge (Rosenberg bursary)

- Oluwademilade Oyeyinka, Architectural Association School of Architecture (Rosenberg bursary)
- Alex Turner, RIBA Studio (Rosenberg bursary)
- Dimitar Zhelev, University of Sheffield (Boyd Auger bursary)
Each student will receive a £6,000 bursary, which will be distributed throughout their course. These have been made possible thanks to generous donations from the Rosenberg Memorial Fund, Donald and Nancy Notley, the WJ Parker Trust and Margot Auger (in memory of her late husband, the architect Boyd Auger), as well as other donations received through the RIBA Education Fund.
RIBA President Simon Allford said:
“Our scholarships and bursaries help committed students first access then thrive in their chosen field of architecture, and I am very pleased that the RIBA – through the ongoing generosity of donors – has been able to support so many aspiring architects. Congratulations to our 2021 recipients and I wish them all the best in their studies.”

- The RIBA is committed to providing opportunities to students through bursaries and scholarships, and RIBA Future Architects, which offers advice, events and a student mentoring scheme.
- RIBA Part 1 and Part 2 Bursaries support students of architecture with £6,000 throughout two years of study; the second and third years of a Part 1, and the full two years of a Part 2. The schemes have been made possible by donations to the RIBA from the Walter Parker Trust, the Rosenberg Memorial Fund, the Ayyub Malik Trust, the Goldfinger family, Donald and Nancy Notley and Margot Auger, as well as donations received through the RIBA Education Fund. The RIBA Part 1 Bursaries were launched in 2018, and support talented students enrolled in Part 1 courses who would benefit from financial assistance in order to complete this stage of study. The RIBA Part 2 Bursaries were instigated in 2014, to address student dropout rates by encouraging Part 1 graduates to continue onto their Part 2 courses and progress towards qualification. The RIBA depends on the generosity of its donors to fund these bursaries and continues to actively seek further funding to enable it to continue to offer support to students.
