Scholarship Program Mission Statement

The scholarship program for Camp Hollywood, sponsored by PSDF, is committed to helping dancers who have been disproportionately affected by discrimination and structural inequalities in society to fully participate in swing dance culture, to include attending swing dance events. Barriers to participation are often related to factors such as race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social class, income level, disability status, and age; however, this list is not exhaustive and the scholarship committee recognizes that dancers have unique lived experiences of inequality that may involve a combination of these and other factors. The scholarship committee will fulfill this commitment to helping dancers by providing monetary support, opportunities for community and networking, and additional guidance during the event as requested by scholarship recipients.

Please note:

  • Scholarship recipients will not be announced publicly; all applicants’ names and information will be kept strictly confidential.
  • Recipients will not be required to do any work or promotion of any kind.

At this time, we are planning to award a small number of event pass scholarships in addition to a few scholarships that include both an event pass and a stipend to offset expenses like travel, housing and meals.
