British Columbia Arts Council Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $3,500
Awards Available: 2

There are two levels of scholarship awards: junior and senior. The criteria for the two levels are below, following the general eligibility criteria.

The Council pays awards under this program to recognized post-secondary schools on behalf of the student. The applicant should check with the BC Arts Council to confirm that the proposed institution is recognized by the Council.

Support in any given year does not guarantee similar support the following year. Each application is considered on its merits, not on previous success.
