School of Dance Scholarships

To apply for School of Dance departmental scholarships for the 2023-24 Academic Year for both incoming and returning students, you must complete the University of Utah General Application as well as the School of Dance application through AcademicWorks. School of Dance Scholarship deadline is February 28, 2023. No scholarship applications will be considered after this date. You can apply for School of Dance scholarships by completing the following steps:

  • Apply for admission to the University of Utah. Within 24 hours of applying for the University, dancers will be assigned a U-Number (uNID). If you need help finding your uNID or setting up your password, click here. Your default password will be your six-digit birthday in the format: mmddyy.
  • Visit AcademicWorks. Click "Sign In" and enter your uNID along with your password.
  • Complete the University of Utah General Application first. When you first login to AcademicWorks, there will be a yellow warning bar near the top that says, "You won't be able to apply or be automatically matched to any opportunities until you complete your general application."
  • Apply for "School of Dance Scholarships" by searching "dance" in the AcademicWorks search bar. 

Due to limited funds available, it is beyond the School of Dance’s ability to support all students and requests for scholarship support. Being awarded a scholarship in one year is not a guarantee that a scholarship will be renewed in another year nor at the same dollar amount.
