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
2010-11 grants of up to ?1,000 are offered to assist students in
covering relocation, interview and other up-front expenses incurred at
the onset of their professional placements.
Further information about how to apply for these as well as other
funding schemes administered by the RIBA Education can be found at
