“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)
The Doctor Peggy Allan Armstrong Bursary (amount $200.00)
Lady Cove Women’s Choir is pleased to offer the Lady Cove Women’s Choir Bursary, given annually in the amount of $1000 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.
In addition, we are pleased to offer a new bursary, valued at $200, which is meant to encourage the next generation of young musicians who are building their experience, honing their craft and striving to be their best.
Interested musicians between the ages of 15 and 20 by December 31, 2017 should apply by completing and submitting the application form no later than January 31, 2018. The application must be supported by one written recommendation from the applicant’s music teacher/conductor.
Applications will be reviewed by the Bursary Committee of Lady Cove Women’s Choir, which is comprised of choristers, Board members, and community representatives. The winner will be notified before April 30, 2017 and the activities for which the Bursary is being sought must occur within sixteen months of the announcement of the Bursary recipient.
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. For this reason applicants should attempt to list more than one proposed activity on the bursary application. The recipient of the bursary will receive a Form T4A slip reporting the amount paid.
Completed application and music teacher/conductor recommendations must be postmarked by January 31, 2018 and should be sent to:
