Furniture Scholarship

Staples Business AdvantageTM has partnered with several colleges and universities across Canada to create the 2017/2018 Staples Business Advantage Scholarship for Corporate Workspace Design.

The scholarship aims to develop and support Canada's next wave of professionals who have the potential to make a significant contribution in the design field. It provides an opportunity for talented design students to re-imagine today’s workspace into a place where digitalization, telecommuting and need for collaborative space can all be combined. Participating students will be judged on a variety of criteria, including overall design concept, space planning solutions, finishes and material selection, presentation skills, and more; and will receive exclusive benefits to hone their design models and skills

The 2017/18 season will be the 8th consecutive year for the Staples Business Advantage Scholarship program.


Staples Business Advantage has maintained a far-reaching commitment to the future of the Canadian interior design industry, including education and support of new business and design talent.

The goal of The Staples Business Advantage Corporate Workspace Design Scholarship is to foster a 360-degree approach to mentorship that will best position emerging entrepreneurs for real world success.

Each school presents their top students based on their respective criterion.

Once a winner is selected at each school, the new wave of interior designers will receive the following exclusive benefits:
