The Summit Dance Fund mission is to provide scholarships for Summit County dancers to continue their dance education outside our small community. Through the fundraising efforts of local dancers and community members the SUmmit Dance Fund is able to provide scholarships for local dancers to study in Denver, New York, Los Angeles and beyond!
The Summit Dance Fund, Inc. works with local dancers and community members to fundraise for scholarship funds. Past fundraisers have included selling cookie dough, selling candy, selling ads in local community performance programs, and performances by scholarship winners. All work for the Summit Dance Fund is done a completely volunteer basis - this includes organizers, fundraisers and board members.
All dancers who live in Summit County, have participated in fundraising, and are currently enrolled in a regular dance program are eligible for scholarships. Summit County dance students may request scholarships by filling out a scholarship application.
The Summit Dance Fund provides scholarships for education only - scholarship funds may not be used for competition entry fees or any travel, food, or other expenses associated with the program for which the scholarship was requested. The Summit Dance Fund does not grant scholarships to attend Summit County dance studios. The mission of the Summit Dance Fund is to aid students in opportunities that arise outside our small community. The Summit Dance Fund wants to open new doors for Summit County Dancers - to help offset the cost of doing more than their regular local program. The Summit Dance fund is not designed to provide financial aid to attend the local studios that dancers are already enrolled in.
