Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund
Archie Alleyne Scholarships Expanded To Include The Arts
– Announced on August 8 to celebrate the 10th
anniversary of the AASF, The Nia Centre for the Arts is teaming up with the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF) to expand the Fund’s program to award scholarships and bursaries to deserving young artists pursuing post-secondary studies in a variety of art forms. The event also honoured Aijia Waithe, 20, a second-year student at Humber College, who is the 2013 recipient of the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF) and the eighteenth person to receive a scholarship or bursary from the Fund.
Asked about her plans to go south of the border, Waithe said that although she loves Canada and was born and raised in Toronto, there are more opportunities in the US.
