The BC Arts Council Scholarship Program supports B.C.’s emerging professional artists to develop their skills by assisting with the costs of post-secondary, pre-professional training. B.C. residents attending full-time studies in a fine arts diploma or degree program at a recognized post-secondary institution, in any country, may apply. B.C. students enrolled in half-day dance programs in connection with their high school may also be eligible to apply.
The BC Arts Council’s scholarship awards are offered to students pursuing an education in a wide range of arts disciplines, including arts administration, community-based arts practice, museology, creative writing, conservation, dance, media arts, theatre, music, curatorial practice and visual arts.
More information on guidelines and program details, including eligibility, can be found at the Scholarship Awards website.
