Bursary Program – Update

The Alumni Committee is continuing to monitor the decisions by WGI Sport of the Arts, Drum Corps International (DCI) and Drum Corps Associates with respect to their competitive seasons.


It is our hope that the performers will soon be able to rehearse and compete in a safe environment and that with support from our Bursary Program one individual is able to work toward achieving their goal.


Updates will be provided as more information from the Drum Corps community becomes available.

Following the announcements by WGI Sport of the Arts, Drum Corps International (DCI) and most recently by Drum Corps Associates (DCA) to cancel their respective seasons for 2020, the Alumni Committee advises that our Bursary Program will be deferred until the 2021 season.

The details for the 2021 Bursary Programs for the Winter Guard, Drum Line and Drum Corps competitive seasons will be posted later this coming summer so stay tuned.

In the meantime, Stay Healthy, Stay Home and Stay Safe

Bursary Program Notice

Due to the ongoing developments with the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the precautions being taken to stop the spread of this most recent coronavirus, we recognize that the health and well-being of every individual must be the top priority.

The impact, if any, to the 2020 DCI Summer competition season is unknown at this time however we are preparing to amend our Bursary Program and Application Deadline if necessary.

Please note that it is not our intention to cancel the Bursary Program entirely so we will continue to monitor the progression of 2020 DCI Summer season and keep everyone informed of changes as they occur.

We appreciate your patience and wish everyone to stay happy and healthy!
