Brian Boak Outstanding Performer Bursary

The Brian Boak Outstanding Performer Bursary is offered biennially and is worth up to $20,000. This bursary has been made possible through the generosity of the late Brian Boak, a staunch supporter of the performing arts on the Darling Downs.

The Brian Boak Bursary is designed to provide support to a person wishing to pursue a program of study or professional development at a recognised university, specialist post-secondary institution or other centre of excellence in the areas of acting, dancing, singing or instrumental performance.

Applications are invited from artists who are Australian citizens, aged 18-35. Where several suitably qualified persons are identified, preference may be given to applicants residing in or originating from the Darling Downs region. The Trustees reserve the right not to award a bursary in a particular year if, in their opinion, there is no suitably qualified applicant.

The Brian Boak Bursary application period is now open and will close 31st January 2020.
