All seniors graduating in Fernie this year who have an interest in the arts are being encouraged to apply for a grant to help with their further studies.

The Arts Station is offering $250 to one student from each secondary school who wants to pursue the arts as part of their post secondary education.

Any interested students from Fernie Secondary School or The Fernie Academy are invited to submit a one-page letter addressing what motivates their art and how they plan to embrace art in their tertiary studies, by May 1.

On May 16, the Arts Station will host an evening event which family members and friends are encouraged to attend. Applicants will have a chance to display their work at this event, where two board members and a volunteer will judge.
