The 2020 Bursary program is presently under review given the indeterminate status of our Spring concert. We are still accepting applications and we hope to find the means to award at least one bursary. If the Spring concert is ultimately cancelled, we will ensure that the successful candidate(s) will receive their award at another suitable venue. We thank all applicants for their understanding.
