BMO Financial Group is expanding its support of OCAD University students with a $300,000 endowed scholarship. The BMO Financial Group Awards, valued at more than $3,500 each, will be given annually to full-time students enrolling in their first year at OCAD University. Recipients will be chosen based on academic merit with preference given to students who demonstrate community involvement.

The scholarships will be renewed based on the students’ academic standing and fulltime enrolment.

“We are grateful to BMO Financial Group for establishing these renewable scholarships which will have a tremendous positive impact on the student experience,” said Dr. Sara Diamond, President and Vice-chancellor. “The recipients will benefit from stable financial support right through to graduation.”

BMO Financial Group has been a champion of OCAD University for over 25 years, generously supporting student talent, signature events and special projects. This latest contribution will allow more students to pursue their passion for careers in art, design and digital media.
