John McAslan extends RIBA/ICE Bursary funding
John McAslan + Partners (JMP) has committed to fund the RIBA/ICE Bursary for a further five-year period
Set up in 2004 between the practice, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the bursary aims to support architectural and engineering students, graduates and newly qualified architects and engineers committed to the progress of environmental and community issues in the UK or abroad.
This year, the Whitbybird Foundation is joining John McAslan + Partners (JMP) in committing £50,000 each over the next five years.
As well as proposing their own projects, students will also be able to select work from a shortlist of projects facilitated by the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).
John McAslan, chairman of JMP, said: ‘Architecture and construction may be going through challenging times, but we feel it is vitally important that those of us who are in a position to, can use our expertise for good.’
