The four winners will receive scholarships to help them pursue post-secondary studies in the creative arts.
Students can apply to one of the 4 awards:
- Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Award for Excellence in Visual Arts
- Award for Excellence in Performing Arts
- Award for Excellence in Digital Multimedia
- Charlie A’Court Scholarship for Excellence in Music (CASEM)
Three $1000 scholarships will be granted according to overall merit (not necessarily one each in the categories of visual arts, performing arts and digital multimedia). CASEM includes a $500 award and a mentorship with musical artist Charlie A’Court.
Music applicants can apply to only 1 award – either Charlie A’Court or Performing Arts.
In addition, up to 15 students will be selected as finalists and will each receive $100.
Submissions for all categories—Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Digital Multimedia, and Music—can be uploaded through our online application form:
Applications for the 2021 awards will be due May 3.
