Northumberland Players awards scholarships each year to students heading to post-secondary education. These awards are funded entirely by the 50/50 draw held every year at the dinner theatre at the Best Western Cobourg Inn & Convention Centre.
The Northumberland Players Performing Arts Award
A $500.00 scholarship, The Northumberland Players Performing Arts Award, is awarded to one student in the graduating class of each secondary school in Northumberland County who:
- has been nominated by the school;
- has been accepted to study in university or college in a Peforming Arts related discipline: for example, theatre, stage management, costume-design, dance, music, or technical studies (scenic design, stage-lighting, sound-design) ; and
- has been active on- or off-stage in the performing arts at the school, or in the community, or with Northumberland Players.
If you are a graduating student who might qualify, be sure to let your teachers and the guidance staff know soon.
