Bernard Jodoin Scholarships

These scholarships, first awarded for the 2002-03 academic year, are to financially assist students in the schools of architecture of the Université de Montréal, McGill University and Université Laval and to perpetuate the memory of Bernard Jodoin, FIRAC. The amount available is divided equally between the three scholarships for eligible students, who have successfully completed at least the first two years of their architectural degree.

It is the responsibility of each of the Schools of Architecture to form a selection committee to choose the recipient of the scholarship. The Schools may set their own conditions of selection, however the following two criteria must appear:

  • good academic results; and,
  • a brief justification of the candidate's financial need.

Only one student from each school shall be selected.

The scholarships are funded by a generous gift from Mrs. Gisèle B. Jodoin. The amount may vary depending on interest rates and will be included in each announcement.

RAIC International Prize: Student Scholarships

In 2013, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), the RAIC Foundation and distinguished Canadian architect Raymond Moriyama created a unique international prize in order to share Canadian architectural values with an international audience and to celebrate architecture that is socially transformative. The next award of the Prize will be made in 2022.

In addition to the main Prize (which is administered by the RAIC) the RAIC Foundation awards three scholarships to students enrolled in Canada's 11 accredited schools of architecture as well as students at the RAIC Centre for Architecture at Athabasca University and the RAIC Syllabus Program. In the words of RAIC Past President Michael Cox FRAIC: "These essays describe moments when their authors understood the world through architecture and formed their own wish to be an architect. Gathering with people, travelling, reading – all are enriched by the places where they occur."

The winning essays will, in their own way, evoke the value given by the built world to our lives, and the wish of architects to contribute.
