Changes to the CAWS Music Scholarship

CAWS Music Scholarship drum circle
As you may have read in our latest newsletter, CAWS has made some exciting changes to the CAWS Music Scholarship.

Funding now applies to anything music related

You can now apply for a $200 music scholarship that can be used for anything related to music. This may include, music lessons, buying an instrument, music therapy, or attending a music camp.  Five scholarships are available for Williams Syndrome individuals across Canada! One applicant will be chosen from each of these regions: B.C. and the northern territories, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces. It is open to Canadian individuals 6 to 21.

Music Scholarship committee

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. Interested in joining the committee? Let us know.
You can apply for the scholarship by filling out the form on our Music Scholarship page or by emailing the Music Scholarship Coordinator, Applicants should include pertinent information such as name, address and age of applicant, name and address of nominator and a brief outline of the applicant’s musical experiences, 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 if you have any questions or check out the CAWS Winter newsletter for more details.
