The annual award is valued at $5000. It is intended for residents of the greater Fredericton area. The course of study can take place at any location and involve performance or production. Students at secondary, post-secondary and graduate levels are eligible.
Information and application guidelines are available through the Fredericton Community Foundation at www.fredfdn.ca .
Applications must be received on or before July 31.
The recipient will be determined by a three-member selection committee. Past recipients include playwright Step Taylor, dance-theatre artist Zita Nyarady, violist Mahmoud Hussein and percussionist Gregory Harrison.
From 1978 until 2006, Council of the Arts Fredericton presented quality performances to Fredericton audiences through its ONSTAGE and KIDSTAGE programs and encouraged young people in their study of the performing arts through awards and scholarships. The Performing Arts Scholarship was created in 2007 with funds from the Council that are managed through a designated fund agreement with the Fredericton Community Foundation.
