Arts Scholarship

Ian Butler was one of the founding members when we opened in 1994. A fund for the 'Niagara Pumphouse Arts Scholarship' for Art Education was set up after Ian's death in 2010. The scholarship is awarded to a deserving Niagara-on-the-Lake graduating high school student pursuing a recognized post-secondary Visual Arts Programme.

In 2018, it was decided that a $200.00 Scholarship will be rewarded each year. Staff at the designated schools, A.N. Myer S.S., Laura Secord S.S. and Holy Cross S.S., submit the appropriate student applicants for final selection.
