Arts Etobicoke awards 16 scholarships annually to secondary and post-secondary students pursuing an education in the arts. The scholarships support aspiring artists from a cross-section of arts disciplines including music, theatre studies, dance, opera, and visual art. The Scholarships are supported in perpetuity by an endowment at the Ontario Arts Foundation. 

“I believe in the power of music. I have a dream that one day my music gives hope to the economically and socially marginalized people all around the world. I owe a big debt for music. When I was nineteen years old, my family went bankrupt. Economic difficulties changed everything in my life.  However, violin never gave me up. It had become my only friend, refuge and sometimes counselor. My final goal is to be a violinist of healing heart and soul. Economic difficulties are going on and on in my life, so your gift allows me to focus more on developing my skills at The Glenn Gould School in preparation for my future career.” – Bu On Park, The Steven Staryk Violin Scholarship Recipient, The Royal Conservatory of Music recipient 2017, 2018.

Fun Fact: Since 1999 our Presidents’ Legacy Scholarship Fund has supported over 263 students.
