Support Emerging Writers and Artists

The Amber-Webb Bowerman Memorial Foundation (AWBMF) was established in the summer of 2008 to honour and preserve the memory of Amber Webb-Bowerman and her incomparable exuberance, talent and creativity. Dedicated to quality in writing, reporting and the arts, Amber encouraged and supported young journalists and artists similarly committed to their own careers. To date we’ve raised more than $100,000 for emerging artists through scholarships, bursaries and other forms of financial assistance. The foundation aims to foster the achievement of excellence, and to broaden scholastic opportunities for emerging Western Canadian journalists and artists. To learn more about the Foundation, go to:
