Bursaries for Performing Arts Students
Each year the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre (VDPAC) Society makes available bursaries to promote and assist students in their pursuit of careers in the Performing Arts OR Performing Arts Management.

VDPAC's Bursary Program is a key part of our developing "Youth Engagement Strategy" (YES).

Bursaries are made possible by the generosity of the Performing Arts Centre patrons from the tips and gratuities from the coat check, bar and concession, affectionately referred to as our "Usher Fund". The VDPAC also accepts donations specifically made for our Bursary Program.

Who can apply?
Students from Vernon, Coldstream and Electoral Areas B or C, who are entering into or returning to full-time studies at a university, college or technical school majoring in accredited Performing Arts or Performing Arts Management programs; OR registered in a recognized apprenticeship program in the Performing Arts, may apply for a bursary.

Deadline for 2018 Bursary applications is 5:00pm, Monday, September 17, 2018.
