RIBA launches 2016 funding for new architecture research

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, providing an opportunity for imaginative, original research, and travel.

In 2016, one scholarship worth £5,000 is available to individuals or groups of students and graduates for a period of international travel (which can be during a period of international work experience).

The RIBA Research Trust Awards are offering grants of up to £10,000 each, available to support original independent architecture research by practitioners, academics and recent graduates.

The judging committee particularly welcomes applications from practice-led researchers.

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.

RIBA President Jane Duncan said:

“The breadth of research that we are able to support through these schemes is incredibly valuable to the profession. Innovative and creative research enables members to argue their relevance and identify new opportunities. I am thrilled that this year we have nearly £100,000 to allocate towards research into architecture.”

The deadline to apply is 2 June 2016. For more information, visit; and/or
