Peter Prangnell Award

UPDATE: Global Affairs Canada lifted the world-wide advisory to avoid non-essential travel anywhere outside of Canada as of Feb. 28, 2022.  As a result, all students are now able to travel internationally on University sanctioned activities. Please note that travel will still not be allowed for undergraduate students for regions with Global Affairs Canada travel advisories of: “avoid non-essential travel” and “avoid all travel” as was the case pre-pandemic. If you are a graduate student that needs to travel to regions under those categories, for research or program completion purposes, please contact

For all students travelling on University sanctioned activity, you must complete all safety abroad pre-departure requirements including checking travel advisories, completing safety abroad online workshops, securing travel health insurance and completing the safety abroad registry. More information on the safety pre-departure requirements for university activity abroad is available on the Safety Abroad website.

The Peter Prangnell Award provides travel funds to students enrolled in the Daniels faculty. The award will be given on the basis of financial need and the merit of the applicants’ proposals. Applicants must be in good academic standing. Applicants must be Canadian citizens/permanent residents, and must meet Ontario residency requirements (receiving, or eligible to receive OSAP).

The award must be used to travel to a specific location where the student will remain for a minimum of a week to study the way architecture, landscape, urban design, or some other aspect of the human-built modeled environment shapes and/or is shaped by everyday life.

A final report is required of all successful applicant(s) on their return from their trip by October 31st in the same year, with the Faculty to publicize award recipient(s) by name and post aspects of their reports (at its discretion) on the Faculty website and in other communications materials.


Value: The approximate value of this award is $6,220.00. The amount may be divided between 1 to 2 students dependent on the applications received.

This award is an in-course award (not graduating) award. Recipient/s must be registered in/returning to their Daniels degree program in the following academic year.


Application: Students must apply for the award by submitting an application and financial need form* and a proposal that details their travel itinerary (including sites to be visited) and budget, as well as a statement of what aspects of common or everyday forms of architecture, landscape, and/or urban design that they plan to study. Students are also required to indicate how the travel will contribute to the development of their further studies.
