The Elspeth McConnell Fine Arts Award

Funded by the Doggone Foundation, this award is a terrific opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to create their own internship project with a non-profit organization of their choice. The award offers an amount of $5,000 for selected students to undertake internships in non-profit arts organizations and projects. Two awards are granted in each of the nine departments of Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts for a total of eighteen awards per year.
