The Ban Righ Centre administers a bursary called the Kay Wolstenholme Bursary, named in honour of a former Queen's University Bachelor of Fine Arts student. The bursary is for a mature female student who demonstrates financial need. We define mature as having been away from formal education for one year or more. The recipients must also be Ontario residents as the bursary funding is matched by the provincial government. The funds can be given to students in Drama, Music, Film Studies, Art History and of course in Fine Arts.
