Scholarship

 FineArt

Welcome to the LDAC Scholarship Information Page

 

Calling all parents of Arts students now enrolled in grades 10, 11, and 12 in the Lakes
District community: in home-school programs, private schools, or in the Lakes District
Secondary School. The Lakes District Arts Council offers an annual scholarship and provides
mentors to help develop the student’s portfolio. The award for the 2016-17 school year is $1,000.
If your young Artist is considering a career in the Arts, and planning to enroll in post-secondary
training in the Arts, we can help develop a portfolio for presentation to the scholarship committee
in his or her graduation year; one that could lead to a more advanced portfolio for presentation
to the post-secondary school of his or her choice.

The Arts are everywhere: in the entertainment that gives us pleasure, in the ads we all see every day,
and in the design of everything that make our lives work. New technologies make study in the Arts a
viable career option for many young Artists. The Arts Council Scholarship aims to help grow the Arts in the
Lakes District Community by providing assistance designed to develop a lasting relationship with scholarship
recipients.

Eligibility Requirements:

Graduating from Grade 12
Enrollment in post-secondary training in the Arts
