Career Launcher Fund 2020

The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers (CEAD) is excited to announce the 4th annual Career Launcher Fund for graduating students. Emerging artists and designers are invited to apply for a funding opportunity that will support activities relating to their early career success as they transition out of school. Proposed expenses could include anything that would be important to advancing an individual’s career success. A jury consisting of representatives from the Student Union, Faculty of Art and Faculty of Design made selections. In 2020, the Fund awarded 31 applications from individuals and collectives of OCAD University from a selection of over 120 applicants.
