About Dance Scholarships
St. Olaf Dance Scholarships are merit-based scholarships that are awarded to students with exceptional dance talent. Students also may qualify for additional need-based aid, in which case the dance scholarship becomes part of the student’s financial aid package.
An award of $6,000 per year is open to dance majors and non-dance majors. This renewable merit-based award is potentially a $24,000 4-year scholarship. Recipients are required to participate in one of the dance department’s performing companies (or a comparable performance-based project) and a movement intensive dance class each year.
A student applying for a dance scholarship must also submit an application for admission to the college. Fine Arts Scholarship applications are due on the same timeline as your St. Olaf application for admission. See the scholarship program timeline for more information. Visit the admissions website for more information and to apply to the college.
