RIBA Education Fund

As an RIBA-validated School of Architecture, there are student funding opportunities offered by the RIBA to assist with your studies at Kingston University.

The RIBA Student Hardship Funds are open to students studying an RIBA-validated Part 1 or Part 2 architecture course, or with RIBA candidate status, in the UK. (Or in the case of applying for support with practical experience, students who have graduated from an RIBA-validated Part 1 or Part 2 architecture course, or with candidate course status).

The grants are awarded from either the RIBA Education Fund or the RIBA Walter Parker Fund.

The RIBA Education Fund is a separate charity created in 1997, which aims to promote education and research and help relieve students of architecture experiencing financial hardship. The majority of 2012/13 grant recipients were Part 2 students, with significant support also made to third-year students, as the intention is to support students in their final stages of education in order to allow them to progress towards qualification. In the 2012/13 academic year, £75,000 was awarded to 73 students enrolled in schools of architecture across the UK on the grounds of financial hardship. This is the highest ever amount of money that has been allocated in one academic year.

The RIBA Walter Parker Fund is funded by the bequest of Walter J Parker, who left a legacy to support the apprenticeship and professional training of architects experiencing financial hardship. Applications are accepted throughout the year, but funding is limited and grants can be made only for as long as there is funding available, so applicants are advised to apply early.

Students wishing to apply for either of the above should refer to the RIBA guidance notes and application form. You can also read case studies from past applicants.
