Bursary Fund

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.

To apply, please CLICK HERE to fill out the google form.

Deadline for May 2024 applications is March 1st.
Deadline for September 2024 applications is June 1st.

Applications will be reviewed by the Bursary Committee, and recipients will be contacted after a decision has been made.

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 for the weekend, 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 hello@womensmusicweekend.com or email to arrange your contribution.

Please note: you will not receive a tax receipt.
