The scholarship is administered by the executive of the Friends of the AGNS Western Branch Society along with a designated member of the Yarmouth Arts Society. All applicants will be advised of the results via email, and the recipient will be recognized at their graduation ceremony. A cheque will be sent directly to the institution once proof of enrolment is provided.
