Prizes Sorted by Discipline
Each year, the Canada Council awards prizes and fellowships to over 200 artists, scholars and organizations to recognize excellence in various disciplines in the arts, the humanities, and the social and natural sciences.
Many of the prizes awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts were established with private donations. These endowed prizes are funded entirely through income generated by the capital. Therefore the amount of these prizes is subject to the performance of financial markets and the frequency and/or value of the prize may vary. Please consult the program guidelines to confirm the current prize amount.
For all prizes and awards, the term "Canadian" means either Canadian citizen or permanent resident, unless otherwise specified.
