Chairman of The Wren Insurance Association, David Stanford, said:
“The Wren Insurance Association is delighted to continue its sponsorship of some of the very best students entering the final year of their Part 2 courses. The standard of entries this year was, if anything, even higher than previous years and I would like to congratulate the five winners and wish them continued good fortune as they commence their final year studies in difficult circumstances.”
RIBA Director of Education, David Gloster, said:
“Students need support arguably now more than ever, as they navigate their way through a particularly volatile period. Scholarships and bursaries are an important part of our ongoing commitment to support students and student talent, and we are very grateful
