As part of the RIBA’s investment in supporting Architecture students and academics, we are now calling for applications to a number of scholarships
RIBA Education Fund – to support students in financial hardship at Parts 1 and 2 all year round.
RIBA Part 2 Scholarships – a new funding scheme to support students enrolled in, or about to start Part 2 in 2012/13.
RIBA Walter Parker Bursaries – to support graduates undertaking stage 1 and stage 2 professional experience
RIBA Aedas Stephen Williams Scholarship – one scholarship worth £5,000 to support one student for a year as part of an academic Masters course or Part 2 in the UK or abroad
RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship – a £6,000 scholarship to fund international research on topics and in locations of the student's choosing. Each school with RIBA-validated courses can submit one application only.
We will launch the call for entries for the 2012 awards in a couple of months. Meanwhile, after being displayed for two months in London, the 2011 exhibition is now in Newcastle (until 15 February). Other locations confirmed for 2012 include Leicester and Liverpool (in the UK), Dublin (Ireland), and Suzhou (near Shanghai, China). Plans for Australia, Brazil, Romania, Turkey, Mexico, and UAE are also underway. For more information, visit the President’s Medals website.
Awards for Research
We are now welcoming entries for the 2012 RIBA President's Awards for Research in the following four categories:
- Masters Thesis
- PhD Thesis
- University-located Research
- Professional Practice-located Research
The RIBA CPD team are delivering a popular series of events on BIM and financial management for architects throughout the UK in 2012 with reduced rates for students. Those who attended have given us very positive feedback.
Tuesday Lates at the RIBA
As part of our Tuesday Lates initiative, when the RIBA HQ at 66 Portland Place is open every Tuesday evening until 10pm, from April onwards we will be organising a series of FREE evening talks by academics and architects who are undertaking research funded by the RIBA. Drop in and make the most of a visit to the RIBA.
If you missed a lecture at the RIBA, you can view them on our website. In addition to talks by speakers such as David Chipperfield, Norman Foster, Edouard François, Jan Gehl, Jaime Lerner, and Kevin McCloud, you can watch debates on architectural education, architecture and law, climate change, etc.
