an investment in our future…
Each year VOS awards a scholarship in the amount of $500.00 (Canadian) to a student who has demonstrated passion and dedication to the performing arts. The scholarship is available to current high school students who are choosing to pursue studies in the performing arts at the post-secondary level, including conservatory style training.
Areas of focus include performance (singing, dancing, and acting), backstage production (lighting design, costume design, make-up, scenery construction, stage management) or any other area of performing arts production. Preference is given to those who have worked on VOS productions in the past or taken part in VOS youth classes or summer camps.
The scholarships will be awarded to an applicant who meets the following criteria:
- Is or will be a minimum age of 17 years at the time of application
- Is a resident within the Capital Regional District in British Columbia
- Has been accepted into a performing arts program at a University, College or
- conservatory for the upcoming school year
- Has not been awarded a VOS Scholarship in previous years
Applications are accepted each spring and are evaluated by committee. Final award decisions are made in July. All applications are confidential and will remain the property of VOS. The scholarship funds will be disbursed each year in the month of September to a recognized theatre or music school at which the selected student must be registered. On behalf of VOS we extend best wishes as you pursue your studies in the field of the performing arts!
