Scholarships available for arts students

The B.C. government has opened its wallets for cash strapped post-secondary students studying art this coming fall.

The B.C. Arts Council scholarship program is accepting applications from British Columbians seeking world-class opportunities to study the arts. Scholarships range in various amounts with a maximum amount of $6,000 per individual per year.

Past scholarship winners include novelist Esi Edugyan, filmmaker Atom Egoyan, classical pianist Jon Kimura, dancer Jillian Vanstone, and animator Ann Marie Fleming.

The scholarship program will accept B.C. residents who have been accepted for full-time studies of fine arts, diploma or degree, at any recognized college, university, institution or academy in the world.

Application deadline is April 30. For more information, guidelines and application forms, please visit http://bcartscouncil.ca/guidelines/artists/youth/scholarship_awards.html
