The Friends of Dance accept applications for the Claudia Moore Reed and Sonja Dragomanovic Haydar dance scholarships in the fall semester of each academic year. Here you will find information about how to apply and what we look for. If you have any questions please contact us.
We announce the scholarships and application availability in early September at the first Performing Arts Club in-studio showing in addition to right here on our website. Applications are available to any full time student who participates in any dance organization on the UMW campus. All applications will only be accepted digitally through the UMW financial aid office, where you can find our application when it is posted online on the UMW financial aid website in the Online Scholarship Manager.
In an applicant, we look for dance contributions at the University of Mary Washington and in the larger Fredericksburg community. Applicants must have a 2.5 GPA and be in good academic standing with the university. We consider the quality of performance and choreography, and encourage participation in dance classes at UMW.
