Scholarships, Awards, & Bursaries

Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries are all managed a bit differently by the CVMTA. Awards are given annually for the highest mark in the RCM Theory exams and for various categories at the Cowichan Music Festival.

The David Walden Scholarship is awarded annually to a student studying music at the post secondary level. Bursaries to study with member teachers are now being distributed via the Cowichan Foundation for the Performing Arts.

Donations to the fund to help provide music education in our community can be made through the fund or by calling Ann Mendenhall, 250-748-8196. We gratefully appreciate all those who make a contribution that will assist and reward many of our worthy students.  We are especially thankful to everyone who supports our fundraisers - all the money raised from these events goes to Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards!
