Library and Archives Canada launches the Price McIntosh Bursary to support diversity in Canada’s libraries and archives

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is excited to announce the launch of its new Price McIntosh bursary, which was made possible by the generous support of the Price McIntosh family.

This funding opportunity provides financial support to Indigenous persons (First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation), persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities who wish to pursue studies in fields related to libraries and archives.

LAC will award up to $10,000 per funding cycle: $5,000 per selected student registered in full-time studies and $2,500 per selected student registered in part-time studies at Canadian colleges or universities for the 2021–2022 academic year, in a program that leads to a career in libraries or archives.

All eligible students are invited to submit their applications for the 2021–2022 academic year by October 15, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).

Guidelines, eligibility criteria and the application form are available on the Price McIntosh Bursary<https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/about-us/price-mcintosh-bursary/Pages/price-mcintosh-bursary.aspx> web page. For any questions, or to request alternative formats, applicants may contact LAC:
