The Aimia | AGO Photography Prize Scholarship Program awarded three $7,000 CAD scholarships each year to students entering the final year of study toward Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees with a focus or major in photography at select Canadian academic institutions. The Scholarships were awarded to students working in photography who have shown extraordinary potential throughout their undergraduate studies. For the purposes of the Scholarship Program, “photography” is defined broadly: submissions can include video, photo-based installation, and other lens-based artwork.

For the 2013-14 academic year, our partner institutions were: Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD), Concordia University, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD), OCAD University, Ryerson University, the University of Manitoba, and l’Université du Québec.

More than 100 students applied to the program, and each academic partner institution formed a jury of three faculty to review their students' submissions and selected one finalist for submission to the 2013-14 Scholarship Program Jury. The three winners each received $7000 CAD and received a trip alongside a faculty member to Toronto in late-October 2014 to attend the Aimia | AGO Photography Prize Winner Announcement Gala and meet the artists shortlisted for the Prize. Additionally, the home institutions of the winning students each received $1000 CAD honoraria.
