THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Palm Springs Dance Project scholarship program is designed to support the achievements of young Coachella Valley students from under-served and low-income families who are already engaged in dance training.
The scholarships awarded may be granted quarterly for any student enrolled at one of our participating dance studios. All applicants have been recommended by one of our studio staff members and directed to this application for submission.
Each application must be filled out completely as all fields are required. The personal statements are evaluated upon presenting the students background, ability, character, purpose, intent and need for the scholarship award. The statements must demonstrate their respect, joy, creativity and gratitude for their training and dance experience.
Scholarships will be awarded to a student who has demonstrated a determination, talent, successful track record and appreciation of their past training as well as an economic need. All nominated students must be 10 years to 18 years of age, reside within the Coachella Valley, and be a student at one of our participating dance studios.
Awards issued are to be at the discretion of the Palm Springs Dance Project selection committee while donor funding is available.
