The Shevchenko Foundation believes that it is critical for young Ukrainians, displaced in Canada by the war to feel the support of our community should they wish to continue their advanced education and training in the Arts. This support will help them achieve their artistic potential while inspiring  Canadian culture with their talent and passion.

We are reviewing applications to award scholarships to displaced youth from Ukraine aged 13 – 21 wishing to continue their studies in performing arts, visual or digital arts at a professional training level with individual certified teachers or at professional arts schools with nationally recognized examinations.

Scholarship support may be used for formal tuition fees or coaching/private teacher fees.

Individuals, or professional schools on behalf of individuals, may apply for a maximum of $5,000 per applicant.

Applications will be considered on a monthly basis, commencing August 8, 2022. Scholarships will be awarded until funds are exhausted.
