Applications are now being accepted for this year’s Daniel Kingsbury Music for Youth Endowment Grant. Several grants are being offered, up to and including $500. Applicants may request funding assistance for opportunities such as music lessons, musical instruments, electronic production, studio time or studio mentoring.
This Endowment Fund is held by Sunshine Coast Community Foundation and is the result of the collaboration of the Coast Cultural Alliance, Sunshine Coast Community Services Society, the late Daniel Kingsbury and the members of the Waking Life 2005 student music project.
Grants are aimed for youth aged 13 to 19 residing on the Sunshine Coast. Other criteria are that they require financial assistance to further musical goals; have experience or interest in creating original music, performing or recording music; and have an interest in contributing back to the community. Previous applicants may reapply.
A selection committee will award the grants to the applicants who best meet the criteria.
Grant funds will be disbursed directly to the service provider (music teacher, studio, retail outlet) and must be used by Aug. 31, 2020.
