Karen Cork is pleased to announce a new bursary to support teens who live outside urban centres to attend Theatre Alberta’s Artstrek: The Rural Outreach Bursary.
The bursary is specifically for teens in smaller communities or in rural Alberta, where there are fewer opportunities for teens interested in theatre and drama to explore their craft. To be eligible, you must live 80km or more outside of Edmonton or Calgary. The bursary is worth 50% of the Artstrek program fee and will be awarded to two teens in 2014.
To apply please apply directly to Karen Cork by email at email@example.com and include a letter detailing:
- Where you live
- Why you want to attend Artstrek
- Difficulties in accessing theatre learning opportunities for teens in your community (e.g. my school doesn’t offer a drama program, there is no community theatre or youth theatre programs where I live, etc.)
Deadline to apply: May 21, 2014.
Theatre Alberta recommends applying to attend Artstrek before the bursary deadline to ensure they are placed in the Exploration of their choice. You can indicate that you have applied for the bursary in your online application under the Community Sponsorship section. Students applying for the bursary may also apply for Theatre Alberta Artstrek Scholarships to further offset the cost of attending if they are financial need.
