The Access Dance/USA scholarship program provides funding for dance administrators and artists to attend a Dance/USA Annual Conference. These scholarships are intended to cover the costs of registration, transportation, hotel, and dining expenses incurred during an Annual Conference. Recipients also receive a stipend toward a one-year Dance/USA membership. Prior to the conference, recipients are assigned mentors to help them meet colleagues and navigate the many sessions and activities during a Dance/USA convening. The scholarship eligibility requirements and the award amount may vary from year to year.
Funding for these scholarships is made possible by Dance/NYC,
a Dance/USA branch office serving the needs of the New York City dance
community, through a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon
*Full Access Dance/USA scholarships are intended for first time conference attendees, and will cover the cost of registration, transportation, up to four nights of hotel (in shared accommodations), meals, and up to $100 to put toward a one-year Dance/USA membership.
**Partial Access Dance/USA scholarships are
intended for Dance/USA members in good standing who are past
scholarship recipients or those who have attended a Dance/USA convening
in the past. Partial scholarships will cover the cost of registration,
a travel stipend, and up to four nights of shared accommodations on the
George Washington University campus.
Dance/USA encourages those interested in attending the Annual Conference to seek outside sources of funding. We urge you to check with your local and state arts agencies. We've crafted a letter for your use in requesting funding, both nationally and in the Washington, DC community. Please feel free to make use of these forms to assist you in acquiring Conference funding.
