The Faculty of Fine Arts offers a full range of research services through the Office of the Associate Dean Research, working in conjunction with Concordia's central Office of Research (OOR) to support the development and growth of creative research and scholarship in fine arts at Concordia University.
The OOR has an extensive database of grants and funding from external agencies, as well as a list of internal (Concordia-based) funding opportunities.
The Brucebo Scholarship for study and travel in Sweden funds a three months’ working residency – starting June 1 – at the Brucebo studio cottage in the Själsö fishing village, 7 km north of the Hanseatic and Medieval City of Visby.
The William Blair Bruce Travel Scholarship provides funding for a European research sejour that is based on an approved Fine Art-related investigative project.
A number of awards and grants are available for undergraduate students who are looking for creative challenges in their studies.
Heather Walker Awards
The Faculty of Fine Arts established two memorial awards in 1995 (Heather Walker Memorial Scholarship and the Heather and Erin Humanitarian Award) through the donations of colleagues and friends. Both awards are for Fine Arts undergraduate students and honour the memories of Heather Walker and her daughter Erin and their legacy of academic, artistic, and community endeavours.
