Apply for an OCAD U School of Continuing Studies Course Scholarship

The RGD invites professional Members (Certified RGDs, Provisional RGDs and Affiliates) to apply to receive Scholarships to cover course tuition as part of certificate programs offered by the OCAD U School of Continuing Studies in Fall/Winter 2021 and Spring 2022.


Applicants can ask for a full or a partial scholarship for the course of their choosing. There is up to $2,225 (in addition to the new 15% discount for all RGD Members - see below) available which will be distributed to select candidates based on a review of the applications received. This means that five candidates could receive one free course each. Most course fees are $445 and a total of five courses is required to complete a certificate program. 

Fill out this form to apply!

Deadline: Friday, September 10


In addition to this, RGD Members now receive 15% off all Fall 2021 courses being offered through the OCAD U School of Continuing Studies. Discount code available in the Members only section of our website. 


All 2021 graduates are invited to join the RGD as a Provisional RGD or Junior Affiliate to receive free Membership (and free access to apply for a scholarship) until the end of 2021.


OCAD U's Continuing Studies certificates and micro-credentials allow designers to develop skills in art, design and media with the option to customize their study while learning core skills. All courses are administered virtually.
