Scholarships Name: Dance Scholarship Program
Description: American Harlequin, a leader maker of dance floors and related dance necessities, hosts a different kind of scholarship program. The Dance Scholarship Program seeks to make it easier for dancers (and American Harlequin customers) to be able to afford performing arts school. But rather than award the $25,000 in scholarship money to the most talented dancers, or those with the most financial need, American Harlequin holds a random contest drawing each year to decide who will get this free money for college. You must already be enrolled in dance school to qualify for this scholarship.
Award: $500 – $5,000
Awards per Year: Varies
Award is Open to: Undergraduate Students
Major/Field of Study: Dance
How to Apply Contact: You’ll have to download and print the scholarship application and submit by mail to American Harlequin Corporation, Dance Scholarship Program, 1531 Glen Avenue, Moorestown, NJ 08057. You can download the form by clicking here.
