Winnipeg Youth Orchestras Inc. (“WYO”) BURSARY PROGRAM

About the Bursary

The Winnipeg Youth Orchestras (“WYO”) is dedicated to providing young orchestra players with the opportunity to experience and participate in orchestra playing of the highest order. As such, the WYO is proud to offer a bursary program for those families and individuals who require financial assistance. The program is available for all of our orchestra programs.

The WYO bursary program is funded through fundraising activities and donations. Bursaries will be awarded for one year of registration fees, and the number of bursaries awarded each year may vary based on the balance of funds available. Bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the WYO Board of Directors.
