The Women's Music Weekend Bursary Fund is an initiative to offer financial assistance to women who would not otherwise be able to attend the event. We aspire to provide a full or partial bursary to at least 2 attendees each year. These bursaries are entirely funded by the generous donations of friends and family and participants in the WMW community.|
To Make a Donation
Since our very first Women's Music Weekend in 2013, we've seen how creating music and singing together has the power to build community and change lives. It has been a dream come true to be able to offer women with limited financial resources the chance to participate in the retreat. It is with your help that we're able to continue to keep this vision alive.
Your contribution will be very welcome. You can donate by e-transfer to Katherine Wheatley at email@example.com or by cheque (make out to Katherine Wheatley, and mail to 63 Toronto Street, Guelph, ON, N1E 3E3). You can also donate directly through Paypal (see yellow button below).
To Apply for a Bursary
We invite applications from women who, without the support of a bursary, would not be able to attend Women's Music Weekend.
Interested women should submit a letter or short essay (up to 1 page) that answers these questions:
How do you hope to benefit from Women's Music Weekend?
What impact do you think music has on a community and what impact might you have on your community through your Women's Music Weekend experience?
Why are you requesting financial support?
Submit applications to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, March 25, 2019. Applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee, and recipients will be announced Monday, April 1, 2019.
Please note: 1) Assistance is most often offered in the form of a partial bursary, but in special circumstances, a full bursary may be offered, at the discretion of the committee. 2) If you have already registered, you may still apply for a bursary. 3) You are ineligible to apply if you received a bursary in the previous year.
Fundraising is ongoing. If you have ideas or would like to assist with fundraising, please contact Christy Pettit. [email@example.com]
WITH APPRECIATION. Your wish to share helps us fulfill our wish to enrich the lives of others with music. Thank you!
Linda, Jane, and Katherine
