SC-CC wants to provide financial support to locally-determined mentorship programs so that mentorship opportunities between emerging and experienced storytellers can be supported across Canada each year. For the 2024 award year, we will award $600 grants to three organizations/guilds/individuals from Quebec and New Brunswick (2024 SC-CC conference region) for the emerging storytellers to receive mentoring from their organization and present their stories at the conference held in July 2024 at the Conference in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Conference admission for the selected tellers is also included in the grant.
