What are Scholarships?
A scholarship is considered support from the organizer which allows a variety of interested and motivated participants access to festival workshops, on a complimentary basis.
Who is eligible for Scholarship?
Scholarships are open to ALL ages, levels and abilities and everyone is encouraged to apply.
Participants must register for the festival before they are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
How do I get myself a Scholarship?
Write to the Festival organizers at (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the title ‘Scholarship Application’. Introduce yourself, then tell us a little bit about how this scholarship is enabling you to pursue your dreams and goals, and how you will use your platform and resources to create positive change in the world. Demonstrate to the festival organizer your philosophy towards learning, sharing, your aptitude towards feedback, and your ability to contribute positively. This application is open to interpretation. We encourage each individual to get creative with your application. We would like to see some visual evidence to support your application. We want to hear from you!!! What are your goals and dreams, your mission, your vision, your values. We look forward to reviewing your application:-)
There will be a call for Scholarship applications from Mid Nov – Mid Dec 2017 via the website and social media channels. Scholarships recipients will be announced at the end of December 2017.
Terms & Conditions of Tap Dance Festival UK Scholarships
TDFUK Scholarships are provided to participants with the goal of supporting the growth and development of this art form globally, and cultivate more grass roots level leadership in our communities. This is not extended to registration fee or tickets to the showcases. Please note all scholarship winners will be responsible for their travel to and from the festival, accommodation and food during the festival. This scholarship is also not extended towards festival merchandise.
Scholarship to affiliated Festivals and Events
Those of you that joined us last year will remember that some TDFUK participants were granted scholarship to DC Tap Festival and Dubrovnik Tap Festival. We were so fortunate to have such generosity provided to TDFUK participants by other festival organizers. Whilst this was a real treat, scholarship to attend affiliated festivals are not guaranteed. Usually these scholarships are handed out by Faculty during festival workshops. My best advice to those who want one, is to show up, be focused, courteous and present, and don’t be afraid to show us you. Good luck:-)
