A helping hand for families

Finances shouldn’t prevent any child from participating in the arts. Based on financial need, Arts Umbrella bursaries allow hundreds of children to register in tuition-based programs at a reduced rate. As a non-profit organization we are committed to making the arts as readily accessible to as many children and youth in our communities as possible.

The Arts Umbrella Bursary Fund is open to all applications for full or partial subsidy. Eligibility and Submission details are indicated on the application form. All applications are held in confidence.
