iDance Scholarships

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2019

 

APPLICATION & GUIDELINES

 

Please print out and return your completed application to the front office in a sealed envelope by November 19th to be considered for a Spring 2019 scholarship.

 

At iDance, we believe passionately in the power of dance to develop artistic expression, technical skill, confidence, poise, and discipline in the students that we reach. We strive to reach as many dancers as possible and to minimize barriers to participation as much as possible.

 

To that end, we are pleased to introduce the iDance Scholarship Fund, which serves to mitigate the tuition cost of dance classes for families with demonstrated financial need. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Dance Scholarship Fund will be funded through:

  • Corporate and individual gifts designated for this purpose;
  • Proceeds from online iDance apparel sales;
  • Various fundraisers throughout the year;
  • A portion of dollars raised through the annual “Give Local 757 Day of Giving;” and,
  • Grant funding when available.

 

Scholarship awards are determined by a subcommittee comprised of representatives from the iDance Board of Directors and the local community. All scholarship application materials and family financial information will be treated as strictly confidential. Scholarships are paid in two semester installments, with the second semester’s payment being contingent on the dancer being in good standing with the studio, including adhering to all conduct and attendance policies.
A copy of the scholarship guidelines and application can be found in the studio office or on the iDance website. Applications should be submitted no later than August 15* each year.

The number and amount of scholarships awarded each year are dependent on availability of funds designated for this purpose.

 

*Please Note: Because the scholarship program is launching mid-year, applications for second semester (January – June, 2019) will be accepted between now and Monday, November 19.  In future years, all applications will be collected by August 15 as outlined in the program guidelines.”
