The Manitoba Craft Council Bursary Fund was created to encourage the artistic development of Manitoba craft artists across the spectrum of craft media.

All current MCC members are eligible to apply. Proposed projects should be targeted towards professional development activities that may include taking a course or workshop, upgrading or expanding technical and design skills, attending an online conference, working with a mentor, and/or assisting in other areas of personal craft study. The fund is not intended to support academic courses that are part of a degree programme, the creation or production of artist projects or to cover capital costs (eg. purchasing equipment or supplies.)

The maximum award amount is $500.
