B.C. arts students can apply for BC Arts Council scholarship

Government offers scholarships to full-time fine arts students

British Columbia residents attending a full-time arts degree or diploma program this fall are eligible to apply for up to $6,000 per person through the BC Arts Council’s scholarship program. Professional half-day dance programs in conjunction with high school are also eligible.

The program, designed to develop professional B.C. artists by assisting with post-secondary education for outstanding arts students, entails a highly competitive, adjudicated process including assessment of individual portfolios. Recognized disciplines include arts administration, community-based arts practice, museology, conservation, dance, media arts, theatre, music, curatorial practice, visual art and creative writing.

B.C. students attending a recognized college, university, institution or academy in any country can apply. Applications will be accepted until April 30, 2015.

With funding from the Government of British Columbia, the BC Arts Council has again allocated $750,000 towards the scholarship program this year.
