Arts bursaries for grade school students

Arts Whistler offers Student Art Bursaries – gifts of between $100 and $200 – to local grade school students in Pemberton and Mt Currie, who wish to take a course, workshop or camp this year, in visual, performing, literary or media arts.

If financial hardship risks holding back your creative one, look into this opportunity!

The bursaries are awarded year around, subject to available funding.

Bursaries are typically $100-$200 and can contribute to tuition, accommodation, and travel costs associated with the studies.

Bursary applications will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Financial need of the applicant student or family. Families who are experiencing financial hardship will be given priority.
  • Previous training or experience and accomplishment in the area of the art the student plans to pursue.
  • Credibility of the mentor artist, institute, school or program the student is attending. 

Applications will be juried within 30 days of submission. Applications and more info here
