Harris Institute Offering $20,000 in Birthday Bursaries

Harris Institute 25 YearsToronto’s Harris Institute is celebrating its 25th year of “Rock Enrolling” by giving away a total of $20,000 in birthday bursaries.

A total of 40 Canadian and International students will each receive a $500 bursary if they enroll for the March 2014 start dates in the following programs:

  • The one-year Audio Production Program (APP);
  • The one-year Arts Management Program (AMP); or
  • The 20-month Music Business Professional (MBP) Double Major (APP and AMP).

Students in the MBP Program also receive the $2,500 MBP bursary and are eligible for direct entry with partial scholarships and accommodation bursaries for a Master’s Degree at the University of the West of Scotland.
