New £30,000 architecture scholarship made available for disadvantaged students

London Met is one of just 10 universities offering the scholarship to students from low-income households, with applications closing on 8 July 2022.

Date: 24 June 2022

London Met and the London Neighbourhood Scholarship Trust (LSNT) are launching a scholarship aiming to support aspiring young architects from the city. Applications are open to students from disadvantaged homes, and hopes to tackle the architecture profession’s lack of diversity.

London Met is one of only 10 universities that are offering this scholarship, which will be made available to three students this year, with plans to expand the scheme in the future.

The scholarship provides students with £10,000 per year to cover material costs and living expenses. Students will also be offered work experience opportunities, and ambassadors from the LSNT will be available for professional mentoring.

The LSNT is a charity which promotes a more socially aware and diverse built environment through investment in architectural education. Together with London Met, the aim is to level the playing field for young architects at the beginning of their professional journeys.

Applications are open until 8 July 2022, and interviews will be held in July-August 2022.

To be eligible:

  • You must hold a September 2022 course offer from a London school of architecture for a full-time undergraduate degree in Architecture.
  • You must have lived in London for at least three years
  • You must be able to demonstrate a household income of below £25,000
  • You must be under the age of 25 at the time of applying
