The MCCP is committed to ensuring that all its courses, workshops, and advanced training opportunities are financially accessible. Scholarships are available to cover or partially cover the costs of instruction for courses, workshops, and other training opportunities offered at the Conservatory as well as in the outreach (off island) activities.
Scholarships will be awarded based on artistic merit and financial need. Financial need will be assessed based on the applicant’s financial declaration. Artistic merit will be assessed based on the applicants’ previous artistic performance training and experience, including but not limited to previous experience at the MCCP.
Scholarship applications are particularly encouraged from low-income residents of Northern Ontario, as well as from Francophone and Indigenous students.
MCCP Scholarships are funded from the following two sources: a) donations designated for the scholarship fund; and b) a portion of students’ fees from the courses, workshops, and training offered by the Conservatory. Approximately ten percent of the spaces in any given course, workshop, or training opportunity are available to scholarship recipients, with the exception of the Mask and Clown Intensive, for which scholarships are extremely limited.
Scholarships on Manitoulin Island, except in very specific circumstances, are offered only to those camping on the property.
Scholarship numbers and amounts for Off-Island workshops are also subject to varying faculty transportation, accommodation, local facility and material costs, and will therefore be determined on a case by case basis.
