Dance Scholarships

The Goucher Dance Program offers a number of scholarships to outstanding first-year students planning to major in dance.

Scholarships are awarded based on an application, in-person audition (video auditions available for those unable to attend in-person), and the recommendation of the Dance faculty. 

Scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000 annually and are awarded in addition to any other merit scholarship for which the student qualifies. Dance scholarships are renewable for up to 8 semesters provided students maintain full-time enrollment as a Dance major and remain in good standing. (Scholarships cannot be combined with a Tuition Exchange or a Tuition Remission benefit from Goucher College.) 

To be considered for a scholarship, please complete and submit the materials below by our Regular Decision Deadline (Non-Binding): January 15, 2022
