THE BIERK ART BURSARY PROGRAM is a bursary program for Peterborough high school students completing Grade 12 in 2021 who plan to undertake post-secondary studies in the visual arts during the 2021-2022 academic year. This program is offered by the Electric City Culture Council, and is made possible with support from the Bierk Art Fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough.
The Bierk Art Fund Bursary Program will provide two bursaries of $1,000.00 each to graduating high school students in the City or County of Peterborough whose work demonstrates great promise (artistic merit) and who have a serious commitment to pursuing further studies at the post-secondary level in the visual arts. Students will have the opportunity to present their work (including but not limited to portfolios) to a virtual jury panel comprised of local arts professionals. The two successful candidates will be announced virtually immediately and celebrated at this year’s Peterborough Arts Awards.
