Price-McIntosh Bursary

LAC is pleased to offer financial support again this year to Indigenous peoples (First Nation, Inuit and Métis Nation), persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities who wish to pursue studies in fields related to libraries and archives.

In addition to encouraging inclusion, the Price McIntosh Bursary aims to diversify the narratives, experiences and interpretations available to Canadians to better understand and enrich our collective history. The bursary was created in 2021 thanks to the generosity of the Montreal family of Walter Charles Price and Adis Florence Mary McIntosh.

The bursary is intended for students enrolled in an accepted Canadian college or university program. It amounts to $5,000 for selected full-time students and $2,500 for selected part-time students. For the 2022–2023 academic year, eligible students are invited to submit their applications by September 20, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).

Visit the Price McIntosh Bursary web page for all the details, including eligibility criteria, application form, or help with completing an application.
