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 per event. These bursaries are entirely funded by the generous contributions of friends and family and participants in the WMW community.
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? (Please indicate if you are requesting a full or partial bursary.)
Submit applications to email@example.com
Deadline for September 2023 applications is June 30th.
Applications will be reviewed by the Bursary Committee, and recipients will be contacted after a decision has been made.
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.
How to Contribute
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. We are so pleased 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.
To contribute to the bursary fund: send an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org or email to arrange your contribution.
Please note: you will not receive a tax receipt.
Fundraising is ongoing. If you have ideas or would like to assist with fundraising, please contact Christy Pettit at email@example.com
Your wish to share helps us fulfill our wish to enrich the lives of others with music. Thank you!
