Scholarships for Conservatory of Dance Students

B.F.A. Dance Scholarships
Scholarships are awarded each spring for the coming academic year. The dance audition is the scholarship audition for new incoming students. There is no other formal scholarship application for dance. Scholarship information for new, incoming students is sent in a separate letter, usually early April. Financial aid requires the FAFSA be completed for any student to be considered for scholarship; a GPA of 3.25 is also required for returning students to remain on scholarship. The following scholarships are awarded to Conservatory of Dance students.
