I want to thank ARTA for presenting me with such an incredible opportunity to advance my education through the degree program scholarship. As a result of the Association’s generosity I will be one step closer to achieving my future goals. Currently, I am in my third year of post-secondary education in the BSc Environmental Sciences Program at the University of Lethbridge. As a consequence of spending the majority of my childhood outside with my sister, I have always been passionate about the outdoors and nature. I have known the career path that I wanted to pursue from a young age. After completing my degree, my intention is to pursue law school and become an environmental lawyer. In this way I can fulfill my desire to help the world we live in at a professional level and to love my career every day because I will know that I am making a difference.

I am a second year Bachelor of Music student at the University of Alberta, studying clarinet performance. I enjoy being an active member of the local arts community and am involved in many performance and teaching activities independently and through the university. In the future, I hope to perform with a symphony orchestra, continue teaching and be a part of outreach programs through music.  Thanks to whoever makes this scholarship possible. It is incredibly helpful and I really appreciate it.

I would like to thank ARTA for selecting me for the ARTA–Johnson Scholarship!
I am from Calgary, but I am currently completing my second year in Human Kinetics at the University of Guelph. Sport has always been a huge part of my life, and being a member of the women’s varsity volleyball team has increased my desire to pursue sports medicine as a career. After I complete my undergraduate degree, I plan to come back out west to attend medical school and eventually become a doctor of sports medicine. I am looking forward to the next few years of my life and what the future has in store for me down the road!
