Funding for students
In active response to systemic barriers which prevent Black communities' full engagement, access, and sense of belonging across Canadian Universities, the BPO offers three types of funding opportunities for applicants from Black communities and/or pursing Black perspectives in their work. All our award recipients are followed and mentored by our coordinator towards the completion of their pursuits.
- THE BPO SCHOLARSHIPS. This year we offered five scholarships of $2,500, which were available to Black students pursing studies at Concordia University. Applications for Fall 2021 will reopen in June 2021
- THE BPO RESEARCH AWARDS. Research awards of $1,000 – $2,500 offered to research working groups from Black communities, and/or exploring Black perspectives within the research. Apply Now
- THE BPO PROJECT AWARDS. Project funding ranging from $300 – $1,500 which is available to Black students, staff, faculty and Montreal Black community throughout the year. Apply Now
