2019 High School Graduate Fine Arts Scholarship


The 2019 application is now closed. Winner will be announced by June 15, 2019. Thank you to all who applied.


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 2018/2019, 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

The 2019 application is now closed.

Notification

All students, their Principals and Heads of Guidance will be notified by June 15th, 2019.
