Funding worth £6,000 up for grabs to eligible Part 2 students

66 Portland Place

RIBA has opened the application window for this year’s Wren Insurance Association Scholarships, which are worth £6,000 each to eligible Part 2 architecture students.

The scheme, which launched in 2013, offers funding and mentoring by an architect member of the Wren Insurance Association to “outstanding” students in the second year of their RIBA Part 2 studies.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in the first year of their Part 2 course in the UK for a chance of securing one of the five scholarships on offer.

RIBA president Simon Allford said the funding help was “vital to support students, and reward and retain talent in the profession”.

“We are very grateful to the Wren Insurance Association for their ongoing generosity, guidance and support to architecture students over the years,” he said.

Wren Insurance Association is a professional indemnity mutual that comprises 70 of the UK’s leading architectural practices.

RIBA said the Wren Scholarships had so-far helped 45 student architects since the programme launched.

The deadline for applications is midday on 6 June.
