The APTA Student Bursary is designed to help students of APTA members continue their lessons during a period of financial difficulty.  Students do not need to be accomplished musicians; instead, they simply have to show a love of music and a strong desire to succeed.   The amount of money to be given out varies from year to year and can be split among successful applicants.  Cheques are issued directly to the teacher. Names of students, their teacher, and their hometown are kept in strict confidence by the bursary committee.

To apply for the bursary, please submit a letter explaining the financial need of your student’s family and have the child submit a letter explaining why music is important to him or her.  Applications should be sent in .pdf form to or a hard copy mailed to:

The deadline to apply is October 31 of each year.
