University of Greenwich Stephen Lawrence Scholarship (Architecture) 2024-2025

University of Greenwich partners with the Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation who exist to inspire a more equitable, inclusive society, and to foster opportunities for marginalised young people in the UK. One of the ways we are working together is through removing barriers to education and work, and we are starting with architecture.

According to the “Equality and Diversity survey” conducted by ARB (Equality & Diversity Data, 2020) 83% of UK architects are from white ethnic backgrounds and only 1% of respondents identified as Black. There are many reasons for this disparity, but a considerable barrier is the cost of training and qualifying.

The scholarship is available for Black students from low socioeconomic backgrounds and/or Black students who are estranged or Care-experienced.

The duration of the course is two years (full-time), and the scholarship is awarded in three instalments per year to assist applicants to pursue a career in architecture.

The scholarship is available for full and part-time study of this course. Please note that part-time students will be awarded pro rata.
