A New Approach to Support Marching Members

St. John’s Alumni Committee proudly introduces the Marching Member Support Fund.


Over the last two years our Alumni Committee has re-evaluated how we can continue to support Drum and Bugle Corps activity. We have renamed our bursary program and refined the application process to be more simplified, inclusive, and accessible.


For the 2022 summer Drum Corps season the Alumni Committee will award 5 (five) individual donations of $100.00 CDN to the first 5 (five) applicants who meet the following criteria:

  1. The applicant is a Canadian citizen.
  2. The applicant’s age falls within the DCI rule for age eligibility, which is: “Drum Corps International's age limit is 21 years of age with one exception. Corps members who turn 22 on or after June 1 are eligible to march during that year. Minimum age limits may vary from corps to corps.”
  3. The applicant must provide a copy, or written proof, of their Membership Contract for the Drum Corps they will be marching with during the 2022 summer season.

All completed Applications must be received by June 30, 2022. The individual donations will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, to the first 5 (five) successful Applicants who meet all of criteria listed above.
