The North Bay Society of Architects (NBSA) has announced the launch of its annual $2,500 in scholarships for students in North Bay and the surrounding area.
The NBSA’s scholarship program, which was initiated in 2019, consists of two scholarships for prospective post-secondary architecture students.
“Our goal is to encourage young aspiring architects in our region of northern Ontario to pursue a career in the profession, and we are pleased to offer such financial support,” notes NBSA Executive Member Noémie Lavigne.
The first scholarship is valued at $1,500 and is designated for one student pursuing a university degree in architecture. The second scholarship is worth $1,000 and will be given to a student pursuing a college diploma in an architectural field, such as architectural technology or interior design.
