Bursaries Offered

The Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration committee is excited to announce that bursaries will be available for young competitors for the first time this year!  We have long desired to make this offer and feel it can be done in 2012.  The term, “bursary”, is more widely used in Canada; for those in the United States the “bursary” is likened to a scholarship.  To receive a bursary amounting to $100 a young person must:

*be age 18 or under (on or before June 14)

*participate in one individual competition category

*submit a handwritten letter stating their goals, interest, and plans for studying and playing the accordion plus their reason for qualifying for the cash gift

* Submissions will be addressed to the Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration Committee in care of: (Canadian entries)  Rod Miller 3675 Anderson Road Kelowna,  BC V1X 7V8   ( 250-807-2083 rodmiller55@shaw.ca) and (U.S. entries)   Doris Osgood 3224 B Street Forest Grove, OR 97116  (503-357-0417   dorisosgood@frontier.com).   Letters must be post marked no later than May 31, 2016.
