Elizabeth Scott Vocal/Choral Bursary offered

Post-secondary students studying vocal arts, vocal teaching, choral directing, music therapy or piano accompaniment invited to apply

As we move into spring, post secondary students and soon-to- be post secondary have not only exams to worry about but also how they are going to finance the next year of their education.

For post secondary students studying vocal arts, vocal teaching, choral directing, music therapy or piano accompaniment the Elizabeth Scott Vocal/Choral Bursary is aimed for you.

While the funds for this bursary are administered by the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan, it will be the members of the Elizabeth Scott Vocal/Choral Bursary Committee who make the choice. Scott herself is a member of the committee.

“We are very proud of the achievements of the previous winners,” said Catherine Dawson, with the committee. “Two of them have completed their MA in vocal arts and are venturing out into the very competitive field of their choice. Two others are currently applying for placements to take their masters degree.”

Those interested can find out more by calling Dawson at 250-545-6494. The entry form is not complicated but does require two references from music instructors. The deadline for applications is May 31.
