Professional Development Scholarship

SADM is proud to partner with CiCi to award a $500 scholarship to a studio owner to be used as an investment in the studio business or to further his/her dance education. To apply for the scholarship, interested parties must be a member of SADM in good standing and own his/her own studio.

Applicants should submit applications by June 1 for consideration for that year's award. The application consists of your contact information and a brief (100 words or less) explanation of how you plan to use the scholarship award.
