The NS Talent Trust is entering its 75th year of fueling the dreams of emerging Nova Scotian artists by giving scholarships to students studying in the arts.
Since 1944, generous Nova Scotians have expressed their belief in over 1,000 talented, aspiring artists through their support of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust.
For the vast majority of emerging artists in our province, support from the Talent Trust is their only potential source of non-repayable funding.
Help us double our scholarship amounts over the next five years to help these young artists.
Now in its 75th year, NSTT is a registered charity funded by government, corporations, foundations, and private donors, with the exclusive aim of propelling the next generation of Nova Scotia’s artists.
Since its establishment, the Talent Trust has contributed over $2 million directly toward difference-making scholarships and prizes that support and encourage emerging artists in music, voice, dance, circus arts, film, new media, theatre, visual arts, fine arts, and literary arts.
Many recipients of NSTT scholarships and awards have established successful careers in the arts at home and abroad. Up to 80% pursue their art form either full-time or part-time after completing their studies.
Help us double our scholarship amounts over the next five years and have an even bigger impact.
