The following is excerpted from a release issued by the BC Arts Council.
BC arts students enrolled in post-secondary studies are encouraged to send in their applications to be considered for grants of up to $6,000 through the BC Arts Council Scholarship Program.
Submissions received must be postmarked no later than Monday, April 30, 2018.
The BC Arts Council Scholarship Program supports BC’s emerging professional artists to develop their skills by assisting with the costs of post-secondary, pre-professional training. BC residents attending full-time studies in a fine arts diploma or degree program at a recognized post-secondary institution, in any country, may apply. BC students enrolled in half-day dance programs in connection with their high school may also be eligible to apply.
The BC Arts Council’s scholarship awards are offered to students pursuing an education in a wide range of arts disciplines, including arts administration, community-based arts practice, museology, creative writing, conservation, dance, media arts, theatre, music, curatorial practice and visual arts.
