CDNY Offers Dance Camp Scholarships for Summer of 2017 Once again Country Dance New York is offering summer dance camp scholarship grants to its members. The CDNY grants may be applied to any camp week* offering primarily American and/or English country dance and music instruction, including callers’ workshops being held in conjunction with a dance week. These are partial grants, limited to a maximum of 40% of the camp fee, and are intended for current CDNY members who need some financial assistance in meeting the cost of camp fees.
Scholarship application forms will be available at the admissions table at CDNY dances. If you would like to apply, complete the form and submit it to Marty Fager at 589 Saint Marks Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11216-3512. You can also deliver the application to me in person at a dance. The application form is also posted here. The application period ends on June 3, 2017. The Scholarship Committee may consider making an early determination and award if needed to meet a matching grant from another organization.
Other scholarships: Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS) has many scholarship programs for their dance weeks. CDSS offers work scholarships, straightforward cash grants, and “matching grants” to be paired with another organization’s award. These grants have earlier deadlines and dancers should check them out immediately if interested. Go to http://www.cdss.org/programs/dance-music-song-camps and http://www.cdss.org/programs/dance-music-song-camps/camp-scholarships for more information. Fiddle & Dance camps at Ashokan: http://ashokan.org/camps/ have some youth scholarships (age 25 and under) available: http://ashokan.org/youth-scholarships/
A partial grant from another organization may be supplemented by a grant from CDNY, up to a maximum total of 100% of the camp fee.
If you need further information, call Marty Fager at 718-622-7415.
