New LIMITLESS Bursary will provide funding support to an Emily Carr University student and emerging artist.
Each year the Federation of Canadian Artists presents LIMITLESS, an online exhibition and competition for its members. LIMITLESS offers artists the opportunity to compete for prizes and to exhibit and sell their work online. Fees from the online exhibition and competition also fund an annual $1,000 bursary for a visual arts student enrolled in a post-secondary institution.
This year, the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) has provided funding to help an Emily Carr University student and aspiring artist to meet his or her financial challenges with the LIMITLESS Bursary, which will be awarded in March 2018. We are grateful to the FCA and its members for their commitment to providing support and opportunities for emerging and developing artists.
“At the very core of the Federation is our goal to help emerging and established artists. As a non-profit charity, we pride ourselves in our phenomenal services for artists, and this exciting LIMITLESS bursary provides direct financial support to an emerging artist studying Fine Art in a post-secondary institution. Meaningful financial aid can supply this young demographic with confidence and encouragement on their path to professionalism.”
