Each year the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society awards bursaries to deserving students of the Performing Arts in Greater Vernon.
The Bursaries are made possible by the generosity of the Performing Arts Centre patrons in the form of tips and gratuities at the coat check, bar, and concession.
The Bursary program is open to students from Vernon, Coldstream, and Electoral Areas B or C, who are entering into or returning to full time studies majoring in the Performing Arts at a registered post-secondary institution or apprenticeship program. Applicants must be on a career track for work in the field of Performing Arts.
This year the deadline for Bursary applications is September 15. To apply, prospective recipients are asked to send a one page essay detailing their aspirations in the performing arts to:
Keelan Murtagh, Executive Director
Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre
3800 33rd Street, Vernon, British Columbia, V1T 5T6.
Questions should be directed to Keelan Murtagh at 250-542-9355.
