Awards & Scholarships

The School of Creative Industries is proud to offer several awards to students thanks to the generosity of our donors. If you are interested in applying, see the criteria for the awards below.

 

The Rosemary Reid Memorial Award

This award was created by Shannon Robertson and James Young to honour the memory of Rosemary Reid, and to support a Creative Industries student (who has completed an RTA module). This award recognizes the light and life Rosemary brought to her RTA cohort. The Rosemary Reid Memorial Award goes to the student who does the same for her or his cohort: bringing kindness, consideration, warmth and enthusiasm to the program and to his or her classmates – which can make all the difference, as those of us who were lucky enough to know Rosemary Reid well know.

Award schedule: Annual, commencing in the 2018/2019 academic year

Application deadline: Fall - Friday November 16th, 4:00 PM, 2018

Amount of award: 1 x $2,500
