Scholarships & Bursaries
A helping hand for families
Finances should never prevent a child from participating in the arts. As a non-profit organization, Arts Umbrella is committed to making our programs accessible to as many children and youth in our communities as possible. The Arts Umbrella Bursary Fund allows hundreds of children to register in tuition-based programs at a reduced rate, based on your family’s financial need.
Applications for bursary funding are open to everyone. To view eligibility and submission details, download the application package below, and apply for Fall, Winter, and Spring Sessions, as well as Spring Break and Summer Camps. Your privacy matters to us. All applications are held in confidence.
