Walker Wood Foundation Bursaries are awarded to students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

Other criteria upon which the Walker Wood Foundation bursaries are awarded include:

  • demonstrated leadership qualities;
  • high academic standing; and
  • good standing with the School and a commitment to training.

The extremely deserving recipient of this year’s Walker Wood Award is – Morgyn Aronyk-Schell.

Morgyn submitted a very thorough, thoughtful application.  Her dedication to her craft and her investment in her training were evident in both her writing and in her excellent grades and evaluations from faculty.

“I fundamentally believe that art is so crucial to a healthy and happy life, community, and world.  I would love more than anything to be able to continue dancing to bring the love and passion of the arts to as many people as possible. I really believe in art as a vehicle for change and I want to be a part of that change.”

Congratulations to Morgyn from all of us at the School.
