Each year the Dufferin Art Council (DAC) awards three, one-time scholarships, each worth $2,500.00, to students of exceptional talent in the field of the arts—the visual, literary or performing arts.
These awards are available to students who are residents of Dufferin County, graduating high school this year and preparing to attend an accredited university or college.
DAC acknowledges that all the categories of the arts include a wide range of programs.

Literary: Creative Writing, English Literature, Books & Media, Journalism, Advertising, Media Studies, Professional Writing, Screen Writing
Performing: Drama, Music, Composition, Production & Design, Comedy, Theatre, Film Development, Dance
… and there are no doubt many more courses of study in each of these categories. Apply for the scholarship that will help you develop your talent
