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.
Awards of $7,000 per year are open to dance majors and non-dance majors. This renewable merit-based award is potentially a $28,000 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.
