2022 Student Scholarships and Awards

Each year, the OAA provides annual scholarships in the amount of $2500 each to be awarded to students in any year of the undergraduate or graduate architecture program at each of the five Ontario Schools of Architecture (and one to a student in OCAD University’s Environmental Design program in the amount of $2000).

The Exceptional Leadership Through Design Excellence Scholarships are awarded annually to up to two students at each school who best demonstrate design excellence and exemplary responses to the need for Climate Action in a project or assignment, as well as two students at each school for their work as related to either Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion or Truth and Reconciliation.

The Architectural Guild Prize Fund (which provides a Guild Medal) is also awarded annually to the graduating students from each of the five Schools of Architecture in Ontario who demonstrated exceptional leadership through design excellence combined with innovative approaches to sustainability in an assignment or project.
These scholarships are administered by each school, entirely according to their discretion.

The recipients for 2022, along with links to examples of their work when possible, will continue to be listed here as the schools make their announcements.
