Scholarship Program

Michael J. Fox Family Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships

By May 2016, a total of $199,000 will have been granted to more than 86 students attending schools in Burnaby School District.

Initial funding for these scholarships, part of a ten year program, was provided by Michael J. Fox to assist students in pursuing careers in the visual and performing arts. Funding is now managed by a committee which draws support from corporate and personal donations, grants, an internal foundation fund and operating revenue from the Theatre's concession operations.

Scholarship applicants must be graduating at the end of the current school year and be enrolled in an arts course in a Burnaby secondary school. Applicants must demonstrate interest, dedication and aptitude in an arts discipline (e.g. dance, drama, music, visual arts, theatre, script writing, stagecraft, directing, media arts). Scholarship funds are to be used to pursue study at a post-secondary institution in an arts or arts-related area.

Awards are based on the strength of the application and evidence of financial need. The amount awarded to each individual may range from $1,000 to $5,000.

Applicants complete an application package (obtained through their school's Student Services office) and submit to their school's Scholarship Committee.
