What Financial Assistance is Available for SongStudio Participants?

It would be impossible to maintain a current list of all sources of grant, loan, and bursary programs available to SongStudio participants, but we can mention a few and encourage you to research funding bodies applicable to you.

FACTOR:  FACTOR (the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings) is a body whose sole purpose is to fund various ventures by Canadian artists and songwriters.  They have a long list of programs supporting budgets for recording, touring, marketing, etc., but most useful to songwriters is their Songwriter’s Workshop Support program.  See our related post for the details on this program.

SongStudio Scholarships:  We are thrilled to have the support of songwriter and continuing SongStudio participant Althea Poulos, who has made a financial donation to support new participants at SongStudio 2016.  Applications for this scholarship are now closed.  Stay tuned for similar scholarships in future workshop years.

Beyond these two programs, we encourage you to research:

  • regional/provincial/federal arts council programs applicable to you
  • music industry funding programs
  • sponsorship from a local broadcaster
  • sponsorship from a local business – music retailer, etc.
  • sponsorship from one or more patrons of the arts
