Volunteers Sought for the NS Talent Trust Scholarship Selection Committee

Are you a professional artist interested in helping to shape Nova Scotia’s cultural future? We are currently seeking volunteer jury members to join the Nova Scotia Talent Trust’s Scholarship Selection Committee.

The NSTT Scholarship Selection Committee is made up of 12 professional NS artists, 2 from each of the following artistic disciplines: dance, theatre, music, film/media, literary and visual arts.  

The Committee meets three times a year: twice in the spring to review, evaluate and award NSTT scholarships from potential applicants; and once in the fall, to discuss policy issues and decide who will receive Special Awards from among the successful spring recipients.  The NSTT Scholarship Selection Committee typically reviews between 95-125 applications per year.  

The volunteer committee makes recommendations to the NSTT Board of Directors but is completely arm’s length.  The Committee is seeking professional artistic experience among members and will work to strike a balance between the various artistic disciplines.  The Committee will take into consideration ethnic, cultural and regional diversity and welcomes applicants from all cultural interests.  The Committee reimburses its volunteer jury members for out-of-pocket travel expenses.

Deadline for applications: 17 September 2014

Please send a letter of interest and a short bio together with your résumé to Andrea Dymond, Scholarship Program Coordinator, at scholarship(at)nstalenttrust(dot)ns(dot)ca.
