Bursary Program

Westwinds has established a Bursary Fund to assist those members to participate in Westwinds programs who can demonstrate financial need.

Who is eligible for Financial Assistance?

Individuals whose financial considerations make them unable, not unwilling, to pay the full annual costs of Westwinds membership and rehearsal fees. New and returning members must demonstrate:

  • Financial need

  • Commitment to regular attendance at rehearsals and performances

  • Willingness to volunteer for jobs such as ticket-taking, information booths, etc.

 

How much of the fees does a Bursary cover?

The amount of assistance varies depending on the total number of members applying for a Bursary, the value of the Bursary Fund for the year, and the financial circumstances of the applicant. Generally, successful applicants have been awarded a subsidy of 50%.

 

How do I pay for my membership and fees?

Once a Bursary has been approved, the applicant will receive a special code that they can use to register. Please do NOT register before receiving the results of your application.

Please note that the deadline for Bursary Applications is September 30th of the current year. This corresponds to the date on which full payment of fees is required.
