Financial constraints may deter many from attending workshops, summer schools, Spring Flings, teacher-training classes, balls, and other dance/music activities. Madison Scottish Country Dancers (MSCD) will consider offering scholarships to such events.
Consideration will be given to (not in any order):
Paid RSCDS membership
Committed participation in MSCD and other Midwestern events
Frequent attendance at Sunday night class
Financial need (self-reported)
Demonstrated genuine love and interest in Scottish country dancing
Desire to improve skills
A Scholarship Request Form should be submitted at least 4 weeks in advance of the event. Notification will be made within 2 weeks of submission. Award decisions will be made by the MSCD Board.
Successful applicants will be required to post a short summary within 4 weeks after their scholarship event to the MSCD group email as a way of sharing their experience and promoting the availability of scholarships. The Member-at-Large for Membership will follow up on that process.
