“Musical excellence is rewarding, exciting and what we ultimately aim to achieve, but we also value the process. The friendships that have been built, the skills we learn from one another week after week, the joy, the tears and the laughter... it is because of all these experiences that we excel.”

Lady Cove Women’s Choir Bursary (amount $1000.00)
Lady Cove Women’s Choir is pleased to offer the Lady Cove Women’s Choir Bursary, given annually in the amount of $1,000 to a developing musician whose primary residence is Newfoundland and Labrador or who graduated from a Newfoundland and Labrador high school, in support of a music education experience. The bursary may be used for travel to a music program, participation in music festivals, lessons, private instruction, tuition or any other music education activity.
Interested musicians between the ages of 15 and 20 by December 31, 2017 should apply by completing and submitting the attached application form no later than Friday, March 2, 2018. The activities for which the Bursary is being sought must occur within sixteen months of the announcement of the Bursary recipient. The application must be supported by one written recommendation from the applicant’s music teacher/conductor.
The Doctor Peggy Allan Armstrong Bursary (amount $200.00)
In addition we are pleased to offer a second bursary, valued at $200, which is meant to encourage the next generation of young musicians who are building their experience and honing their craft. It is open to musicians between the ages of 15 and 20 by December 31, 2017 who are striving to be their best. The activities for which the Bursary is being sought must occur within sixteen months of the announcement of the Bursary recipient. The application must be supported by one written recommendation from the applicant’s music teacher/conductor. The same application form and deadline as the Lady Cove Women's Choir Bursary will be used.
Applications will be reviewed by the Bursary Committee of the Lady Cove Women’s Choir, which is comprised of Choir and Board members, and community representatives. The winner will be notified before April 30, 2018. Recipients are required to demonstrate that the funds were used for the proposed activity. In the event the bursary cannot be used by the recipient, it should be returned to Lady Cove Women’s Choir.
