RIBA Research Trust Awards have been offered since 2009 following a mergence of the Modern Architecture and Town Planning Trust and the Historical Research Trust.

The scheme is administered by the RIBA Education Department is open to applicants interested in a wide range of subject matter relevant to the advancement of architecture, and the arts and sciences connected therewith, in the United Kingdom. Applications from outside the United Kingdom may be submitted; however, the research work must in the main be undertaken within the United Kingdom. The supervisor must be domiciled in the United Kingdom. Project proposals where research is carried out outside the UK will be accepted only in exceptional circumstances.

In 2010 four awards not exceeding £7,500 each will be made.

The primary objective of the awards scheme is to help graduates at the beginning of their career further understand the role of research. It is hoped that a number of recipients will go on to be accomplished researchers in the architectural field.

RIBA Research Trust Awards are awarded for a closely defined piece of architectural research and are not available to pay course fees and subsistence costs whilst enrolled on PhD/MPhil or Masters programmes.

The closing date for submitting complete applications is Friday, 25 June 2010.
