Nature of the grant
The Phyllis-Lambert Grant aims to recognize and promote the talent of emerging Montréal designers. Awarded annually by the Bureau du design of the City of Montreal since 2008, this $ 10,000 grant provides an opportunity for a young designer interested by the theme of the city to carry out a professional development project in one or several of the 116 cities in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, which Montreal is part of as a city of design since 2006.
To be eligible, a candidate must hold a bachelor’s degree in a design discipline (architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, industrial design, graphic design, environmental design, urban design, urban planning) and have less than than 10 years of professional experience. The candidate must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident (for at least the last 12 months) and must be living or must have a workshop in the city of Montréal.
