The scholarship program was established in the memory of Peter Milner, the biggest kid of all, who was co-founder (with Bob Hayes) of the Kluane Mountain Bluegrass Festival.  Peter loved to play banjo, and introduced many to the world of bluegrass music.

The scholarship is open to anyone between the ages of 15 and 24 as of 21 June, 2018.

If the successful candidate is 18 or younger as of June 21, 2018 the student must be accompanied by a parent or authorized adult who is also registered for camp (for overnight stay) or be dropped off and picked up daily. Please contact us to discuss these arrangements: [email protected]

Please forward your submissions or any questions you may have, by email to [email protected] or, by mail to Yukon Acoustic Music Workshop, 206 Hawkins St, Whitehorse, YT Y1A 1X4.
