This Scholarship is available to Nova Scotians between the ages of five and twenty-one who are keen to advance their skills in one or more of the following Gaelic traditions: fiddle, pipes, piano, language, storytelling, song and dance.
The Treasurers of Youth Fund concept was inspired by the enthusiasm of the late Michael Anthony MacLean from Washabuck, NS. Michael Anthony was a well-known fiddler who always had a keen interest in assisting youth to further their skills in playing traditional Cape Breton music.
**Please note that next year’s scholarship deadline will be March 31, 2017.**
