CAWS Music Scholarship

Williams Syndrome child with musical insturment


As you may have read in our latest newsletter, CAWS has made some exciting changes to our Music Scholarship Program. The scholarship can now be used for anything related to music. This may include, music lessons, buying an instrument, music therapy, or attending a music camp.  It is open to Canadian individuals 6 to 21.  Five scholarships are available. One from each of these five regions: B.C., the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces.

Also, the scholarships will be awarded by a Music Scholarship Committee made up of two volunteers and the Music Scholarship Coordinator. CAWS is looking for these two volunteers for this year’s committee.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to apply for the scholarship please contact the Music Scholarship Coordinator, Rick Chmilar at or (705) 693-5003. Applicants should include pertinent information such as name, address, age etc. as well as a brief outline of the applicant’s musical experiences and goals and a description of what they intend to use the scholarship for. A short audio or video clip ( attachment or link to hosting site) featuring the applicant’s musical talents should also be included. The deadline for applications is April 30.

Please feel free to contact Rick Chmilar (contact info above) if you have any questions or check out CAWS’ Winter newsletter for more details.
