Summer Program Awards

Summer Program Awards

The FSPA Summer Program Awards provide financial assistance toward summer programs that enhance studies in Theatre, Music or Cinema and Media Studies at Dalhousie. Acceptable programs could be relevant international courses run by Dalhousie or special summer programs offered by other universities or organizations in Canada and beyond.  The program must take place during summer of 2018 (May-August).

To be eligible, you must be a current student having declared a major in Music, Theatre, or Cinema and Media Studies. A GPA of 3.3 or above is required and financial need may be a factor in decision-making.

Please note that several awards of $1,000 minimum are available specifically for qualified student participants in Dalhousie's Advanced Seminar in Baroque Culture, which takes place in the Czech Republic. 

The application deadline for 2018 summer program funding is January 31, 2018.
