The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is calling for applications from students, academics and practitioners interested in conducting research in architecture during 2016/17.
- The RIBA Boyd Auger Scholarship aims to support applicants in their personal, professional and academic development within the architectural field by providing them with an opportunity to undergo a period of imaginative and original research and travel. The Scholarship, worth £5,000, supports either:
- one student or graduate or a group of students or graduates for a period of closely defined architectural research between 6 and 12 months.
- one student or graduate for a period of international travel on a topic and at locations of the applicant’s choosing. This can tie-in with a period of international work experience, but the emphasis of the scholarship should be on the opportunity to travel in the chosen location.
All applicants must:
- Be enrolled in a RIBA validated Part 1, 2 or 3 course or with candidate course status, in the UK or overseas or have been granted a place of study in a validated or candidate Architecture course by the beginning of the period covered by the Bursary (Part 2 only), or
- Have graduated from a RIBA validated Part 1, 2 course or with candidate course status within the past 5 years

- The RIBA LKE Ozolins Studentship is worth £18,000 outside London or £20,000 in London annually to a student who wishes to pursue, continue or complete a higher degree in research (PhD/MPhil or MRes) for a maximum of 3 years. The applicant should be registered for the degree in a department in a British university which runs undergraduate courses validated by the RIBA. In this instance, the delivery of research training is more important than the subject to be studied, so the applicant should show why they want to follow this course and what they expect to do with it. More information can be found at www.architecture.com/ozolins
- The RIBA Research Trust Awards is open to applicants interested in a wide range of subject matter relevant to the advancement of architecture, and connected arts and sciences, in the United Kingdom, and is for a closely defined piece of architectural research. The committee will support practice-led or academic research, but it will not support course fees and subsistence costs for PhD/MPhil or Masters programmes. Awards are given only to named individuals, not organisations. The maximum grant applicants may apply for is £10,000. A detailed breakdown of costs should be provided in the application form. Applicants based outside the UK are also eligible to apply; however the research work must in the main be undertaken within the United Kingdom.
