Pushing the boundaries of art, craft, and design

Professors at NSCAD are not only artists, designers, and makers but also innovators and researchers. Many of their research projects receive national grants and awards as well as media coverage across Canada.

The Office of Academic Affairs and Research Services provides information on sources of grant funding, assists with grant applications and contract proposals, supports project planning, proposal development and project coordination, and promotes research within and beyond the NSCAD community.
