FW: RIBA ICE McAslan Bursary 2012 - £7,500 grant for students and recent graduates

September deadline for the RIBA ICE McAslan Bursary in 2012.


This is a great opportunity for current students and recent graduates to apply for up to £7,500 to develop an original design project that will cultivate positive change to communities and environments.


The project should encompass the ethos of John McAslan + Partners:

·         To create architecture that improves people's lives;

·         To aim for an architecture which is rational and poetic, robust and delightful;

·         To tackle problems head on and think laterally;

·         To deconstruct a brief and let a design emerge from close examination of the pieces;

·         A belief that buildings should be underpinned by a powerful idea;

·         that the idea should be an intelligent and logical response to functionality and a sense of place.

In addition to providing up to £7,500 of funding, John McAslan + Partners will offer mentoring support to the bursary holder.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must be a student or have graduated in the last 5 years from an RIBA-validated school of architecture, or a JBM-accredited engineering course.

See the website for more details www.architecture.com/mcaslanbursary


You can download the Information to Applicants and Application Form from the website.


Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about this Bursary.


Please forward this email and promote this opportunity to students and recent graduates who are eligible to apply to the Bursary.

The RIBA Education Fund (www.architecture.com/educationfund) offers
maintenance grants and one-off payments to students of architecture
experiencing financial hardship. Students may apply for grants
throughout the 2010-11 academic year using an application form which is
available to download from the Fund's webpage. All Part 1 and Part 2
students who have been resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to
the start of their first course in Architecture are eligible to apply.
However, first year Part 1 students will be awarded grants only in
exceptional circumstances as the Fund tends to support students who have
proven their commitment to the course and the profession.

The RIBA Walter Parker Bursary
rsaries/RIBAWalterParkerBursaries.aspx) exists to support students
undertaking Part 1 and Part 2 professional experience placements. In
