Lindsay Dumaine Memorial Scholarship

The Lindsay Dumaine Scholarship Music Fund started in 1993 to assist young people who are pursuing music education. Since that time, the Arts Council has included a performing arts scholarship and has recently created a visual arts scholarship. Three yearly scholarships are presented at the Graduation Ceremonies at North Peace Secondary School to students who are pursuing further education in music, visual arts and performing arts following graduation from high school.

The seed money for the original Lindsay Dumaine Memorial Music Scholarship was contributed by the Ray Dumaine family after their son Lindsay was killed in an auto accident in 1992. Past recipients have been very grateful for this support towards their musical and performing arts endeavours.

The Arts Council has added funds yearly to the original contribution of $1,315, which has now grown to $ 12,250. From 1999 – 2004, the interest has provided two scholarship awards of $250/each to the Lindsay Dumaine Scholarship for Music and the Lindsay Dumaine Scholarship for Performing Arts. In 2006, a third award for Visual Arts was included and the amount of each of the awards was increased to $300 per student.

Donations to increase the Scholarship fund are welcome and donors will receive a tax-deductible receipt. The Arts Council plans to continually increase the scholarship to add more deserving students to the list of recipients.
