ACSSU presents the Assyrian Heritage Fine Arts Scholarship, sponsored by Assyrian
Heritage. This scholarship is offered to an Assyrian (also known as Chaldean or Syriac)
student who best combines academic achievement and their natural talent to preserve the
Assyrian heritage. It is granted to a student entering or continuing a post-secondary
program in the Arts, Design, Drama, or Performance in a Canadian institute. ACSSU and
Assyrian Heritage share a common vision of promoting higher education and a
nationalistic pride. We believe these are the only means of preserving our heritage and
mobilizing our Assyrian humanitarian needs. This scholarship is to honour and aid one
student who shares this same vision as ACSSU and Assyrian Heritage.
