CODE Members will be interested to take note of this announcement of possible funding for students of the arts! You are encouraged to spread the word on this wonderful grant opportunity.
It gives me great pleasure to inform you of the 2010 Hnatyshyn Foundation program of Developing Artists Grants. In July we will be awarding grants of $10,000 each to eight exceptionally talented young Canadians undertaking post-secondary studies in the following performing arts disciplines: classical ballet, contemporary dance, acting (English theatre), acting (French theatre), classical music (piano), classical music (orchestral instrument), jazz performance (instrumental or vocal) and classical vocal performance (Posters for all of the categories can be found on our website).
Institutions offering post-secondary programs in one or more of the designated disciplines are being invited to nominate a student in each category. Each institution may nominate only one candidate per discipline, and each student may be nominated by only one institution.
Nomination forms are available on the Hnatyshyn Foundation website at www.rjhf.com/html/danomination-e.html and the deadline for the receipt of completed nomination forms and required materials in most grant categories is April 23, 2010. You may also apply online. The adjudication process will take two months. All institutions submitting nominations will be informed of the results around the middle of July.
Please note that the eligibility criteria are not the same in all disciplines. If you should need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone at (613)233-0108 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
I thank you in advance for your collaboration in identifying young Canadians of exceptional promise for these grants.
