RIBA student scholarship opens for entry
The RIBA has launched a £5,000 scholarship for final year Part 2 students
The 2014 RIBA Wren Insurance Association Scholarship, which has been running for the past three years, offers Part 2 students support during the final year of their studies.
Five awards of £5,000 each are up for grabs.
Last year scholarships were awarded to students at the University of Dundee, Westminster, the University of Belfast, Oxford Brookes University and the Royal College of Art.
RIBA president Stephen Hodder, said: ‘The RIBA is committed to supporting students and helping them realise their ambitions to become architects. Thanks to the generosity shown by the Wren, these scholarships will provide five of our students with vital support at a crucial stage of their professional development.’
Richard Pullen, Chairman of Wren, added: ‘The impact of last year’s scholarships exceeded our expectations and we are anticipating even greater interest this year as the Wren looks forward to helping a further five Part 2 students with this year’s scholarships. The Wren is proud to have established these scholarships and is grateful to the RIBA for their support. Having helped each other over the last 26 years, the Members of the Wren feel that it is appropriate to support and encourage the next generation of talented architects who have the potential to make a significant contribution to the field of architecture.’
The deadline for applications in 5 May 2014.
