  • Eligibility requirement:
  • - The RIBA Education Fund is open to students studying an RIBA-validated Part 1 or Part 2 architecture course, or with RIBA candidate status, in the UK. - Applicants should have successfully completed the first year of an RIBA-validated Part 1 course in the UK. - Non-British students must have been resident in the UK full-time for at least 3 years prior to the start of their first course in architecture. Please also note the additional eligibility criteria: - Applicants are expected to explore all areas of funding available to them before applying to the Education Fund. This includes student loans, University Hardship Funds, Bursaries and Access to Learning Funds. Proof that these sources of income were successful or denied must be submitted with your application. - Students who have already obtained a degree in another subject are only considered on an exceptional basis. - A student who is repeating part of the course will normally only be supported in exceptional circumstances and where funding is not available from elsewhere – for example, if there are medical reasons, or on compassionate grounds because of personal or domestic problems. - An exception to the above residency criteria applies to an applicant who has lived in the UK for a substantial part of their life but was not a resident three years prior to the start of their course because of being moved abroad by parents, guardians, or due to spouse’s employment. Applicants who are resident of the Channel Islands and Isle of Man may also be considered. - Education Fund grants are not available to contribute to course fees on architecture courses at private educational institutions (those that charge fees in excess of the amount normally covered by Government loans and grants).
  • Application details:
  • Students will need to complete the application form (available to download in Word format from www.architecture.com/educationfund). Applications are considered by at least two of the Trustees of the Education Fund, who assess all applications rigorously and in confidence. Please ensure that you use the version of the form for the current academic year. The application form is divided into the following six sections: 1. Personal details 2. Course details 3. Academic and employment history 4. Financial resources. This includes your income and expenditure for the 2012/13 academic year; details on scholarships, bursaries and other grant applications, and details of your dependents. Your parents’ signatures are required for this section. 5. Personal Statement. This is for you to explain your current financial situation and your ambitions as a student of architecture. 6. Tutor’s endorsement. Your tutor is asked to complete two specific questions relating to your academic performance and potential and is required to sign this section. When assessing the applications, the Trustees refer to the evidence presented. It is therefore important that the information is complete and accurate.
