EducationMatters and Statoil Canada are excited to announce a new scholarship opportunity for art students in Calgary.

The Statoil Canada Arts Scholarship at EducationMatters is part of Statoil’s commitment to arts and culture development.

In 2018 the award will be granted to art students graduating from the Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Catholic School District. The new scholarship will be awarded to Calgary students who are choosing post-secondary education in the artistic pursuits of dance, music, theatre, and visual arts.

Statoil Canada proudly promotes the arts and encourages students to pursue higher education in the arts. In recent years, the company has supported art students through scholarships in Newfoundland and Labrador, and after realizing the success of their investments in the province, Statoil Canada is excited to expand their support to students in Calgary.

“Statoil celebrates the heroes of tomorrow who inspire us to make the impossible possible,” said Alex Collins, Head of Communications, Statoil Canada. “We have a long-standing commitment to arts education, and we look forward to this partnership with EducationMatters to offer this scholarship opportunity to an aspiring artist.”

2018 marks the 15th year of EducationMatters working closely with generous donors to create scholarships and awards for publicly educated students. EducationMatters is honored to facilitate the awards made possible by our partners and believes that the best public education happens when the community participates in its development to ensure that every student is prepared for adult life.

The application process for all 2018 student awards will go live on March 1, 2018. Click here for more details.
