Student Art Bursary Applications

Student Art Bursary

Arts Whistler is dedicated to making the arts accessible to all children and youth in our community. A modest bursary program is available to a student in any grade from schools in Whistler, Pemberton, or Mt. Currie. Bursaries are available for students who wish to further their studies in the visual, performing, literary, or media arts at a credible institution or from a recognized mentor or artist. 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 or the student is attending

Student Art Bursaries are now accepting applications on a year-round basis

Bursaries are available for courses or camps which take place at any time of year. Applications will be juried within 30 days of submission. Submissions may be emailed to smccolm@artshistler.com or sent to the Maury Young Arts Centre.
