Theatrical Arts Bursary Awards

The Deep River Players Theatrical Arts Bursaries are intended to offer financial support to students who have been actively involved in Theatre Arts and are enrolling in full-time studies at a post-secondary institution in some area of Theatrical Arts such as Drama, Directing, or Screenplay Writing, or a technical course that supports the Theatrical Arts, such as Lighting, Set Design or Costumes.

Value of Awards:
A maximum of $1500 will be awarded to one or two recipients for the Deep River Players Bursary Award. The final amount and number of bursaries awarded each year is at the discretion of the Deep River Players Bursary Committee and will depend on the number and quality of applicants.

Applicants for the DRP Theatrical Arts Bursary must be pursuing full-time study in the discipline of performing/theatrical arts or technical support at the post-secondary level. Applicants must have demonstrated an interest in theatrical arts by participating in school and/or community productions, by membership in a theatrical group, or through related job or volunteer experience.

Applicants should be dedicated students as supported by their academic record, however, passion for theatrical arts, as demonstrated by participation in performances within the school and/or community, will carry the greater weight.

Applicants must identify the institution where they intend to study and proof of acceptance must be shown before the award is transferred.

All sections of the application form must be completed. If the applicant wishes to share other relevant information with the selection committee, s/he is welcome to submit a separate piece of paper or write on the reverse of the form (clearly referenced on the front of the form).
