About

In 2012, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Art in Action we initiated an annual scholarship to encourage young artists in Burlington pursuing a post secondary education in the fine arts. We were able to offer 2 scholarships of $1000.00 each to two Burlington students. Every year since 2012 we’ve presented one Scholarship with a value between $1000.00 – $1,500.00 to a talented student.

This year’s scholarship has a minimum value of $1000.00 and will be awarded to the most deserving student at their high school’s commencement ceremonies.  The student is invited to participate in the gallery exhibit, the Burlington Studio Tour, and will receive media attention.

Criteria

The student must graduate from a Burlington High School in the school year 2017/2018, and intend to pursue a future career in the Arts, studying at the post secondary level in an arts focused program. The jurors are looking for originality, creativity, concept and execution.

Application Process

Each Burlington High School may nominate up to two students for this award. The student must complete an application form, include four to six jpeg images of their art, and be endorsed by the school’s Principal. NOTE: Do not include a name on the jpeg that identifies either the student or the high-school.  Images where this information is visible will not be considered. All images submitted must be in the jpeg format. CDs or USB drives are equally acceptable. If you would like your images returned, include a self-addressed stamped envelope. All applications must be post marked by May 15, 2018 or delivered to Darlene Throop at 1295 Knights Bridge Ct. Burlington, L7P 3K8 by May 15, 2018.

Notification

All students, their Principals and Heads of Guidance will be notified by June 30, 2018.
