The Folk Dance Federation of California provides several scholarships each year to potential group leaders and teachers of folk dancing, as well as to experienced and new folk dancers. All are encouraged to apply. Applications will be considered on an individual basis.
Scholarships were historically given for partial tuition to Stockton Folk Dance Camp, and over the years many people have enjoyed this dance experience. The Federation Scholarship Program was expanded in 2010 to include partial tuition for other folk dance camps or workshops.
The typical grant amounts are 50% of the cost of attending the event, but amounts will vary. You may download and complete a Scholarship Application.
Additional information about this scholarship program is available from the Federation Scholarship Chair.
In addition, please consider applying for a scholarship from the National Folk Organization which offers a Discovery Grant that pays for travel expenses.
