RIBA launches new student bursaries

The RIBA has launched two new funding schemes for architecture students.

The RIBA WCCA Travel Award has been set up in memory of Stuart Murphy, former chief planning officer for the City of London, and will provide an international travel grant of up to £2,000 to a part II student or group of students from Greater London.

The RIBA Stephen Williams Scholarship, established in memory of the former Aedas director, aims to support exceptional students at part II or masters level with a £5,000 award and mentorship from Aedas.

The deadline for application for both awards is March 26.

Additionally, the RIBA has also announced the recipient of the 2010 RIBA HSE Research Fund, which provides funding for research into the teaching of health and safety in architecture schools.

A team from Sheffield University, including Daniel Jary, Leo Care, Howard Evans and Rosie Parnell, have been awarded £10,000 for their project.

John-Paul Nunes, head of education projects at the RIBA said: “The RIBA is firmly committed to the promotion of excellence in architectural education, and helping talented students achieve the best of their ability. We would like to thank our very generous partners in helping us to achieve this goal.”
