Study the arts

The B.C. government is increasing support for the scholarship program from $150,000 to $750,000 this year.

The BC Arts Council Scholarship Program is offering more opportunities for young British Columbians to study the arts.

The B.C. government is increasing support for the scholarship program from $150,000 to $750,000 this year. As a result, the number of scholarships granted to British Columbians studying the arts could more than triple, from about 50 to as high as 175.

The new funding increases the maximum value of the scholarships from $4,000 to $6,000.

The BC Arts Council, government’s development and funding agency for the arts, grants scholarships to help B.C. students attend prestigious art schools and universities in the province, across Canada and worldwide.

British Columbia residents entering a full-time degree or diploma program in a range of disciplines can apply for a scholarship. The application deadline is April 30.
