We are excited to announce the creation of the Michael Kaufmann Memorial Bursary. This bursary is available for adult voice students (18+), with preference given to students ages 25+, to be used toward voice programs in the Conservatory of Music. A founding member of the Five Singing Guys, Michael Kaufman was one of Lethbridge's best-known vocalists and an avid supporter of the arts.
In determining the recipient of this award, the Bursary Committee will consider the applicants' commitment to music study as well as financial need. Additional factors such as temporary unemployment, emergencies, illnesses, and the total cost of music education at the Conservatory of Music are also taken into consideration.
All bursaries are credited directly to students’ accounts at the University of Lethbridge Conservatory of Music and will under no circumstances be paid out as cash. The Conservatory of Music reserves the right to reduce or discontinue any bursaries due to students’ withdrawal from lessons. Bursaries must be used during the semester for which they are awarded. Unclaimed bursaries are considered forfeit.
Please fill out the application form below. Deadline for the Winter bursary is November 20, 2018 and awarded by December 1, 2018. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
