Carole Vivier Scholarship

April 8, 2021
Sisler High School Create Program Carole Vivier Scholarship

The Carole Vivier Scholarship for Women in Film is awarded to a female or non-binary graduate of Sisler High School’s CREATE program each year.

The scholarship was set up in 2019 upon the retirement of Manitoba Film & Music’s CEO Carole Vivier, following her 30-year career at the Crown Corporation. During her time as CEO, Vivier heralded the growth of our province’s internationally renowned film and music industries.

Past scholarship recipients include:

Chantal Philipot (2019)

As a students in the Sisler CREATE post-high program Chantal contributed animation to the short film ‘Cops and Robbers’ which later made the Academy Award long list. She is currently doing concept art/character designs for a new local TV show and illustrations for two separate children’s books. 

Aaron Raymundo (2020)

Upon graduating the Sisler CREATE program, Aaron went on to pursue their post-secondary studies at Vancouver Film School in Classical Animation.

Donations can be made to Winnipeg School Division’s Children’s Heritage Fund in return for a tax receipt. The Children’s Heritage Fund will transfer all donations directly to the school when the scholarship is awarded.

The school division has set up a secure PayPal donation on the Sisler High School website for easy payment. 

Donations can also be made by cheque, payable to the Children’s Heritage Fund. If paying by cheque, please be sure to clearly indicate on the memo line that your contribution is in support of the Carole Vivier Scholarship for Women in Film.

Together we can make a real difference. Thank you for your support.
