** Stay tuned for 2023 scholarship information coming soon!**
Camp Hollywood and Pacific Swing Dance Foundation, Inc. are pleased to be able to offer a variety of full and partial scholarships for Camp Hollywood 2022. Applications will be accepted until August 1, 2022 with a goal of awarding all scholarships by August 12, 2022.
We believe that increasing diversity will help ensure a healthier swing dance community. Swing dancing is for everyone and historically has been danced by many underrepresented individuals. We are offering these full and partial scholarships to reach out to dancers everywhere and to better live our own values.
Scholarship awards will take into consideration factors such as age, ethnicity, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, passion, and more. We encourage applications by People of Color, members of other historically marginalized groups, and individuals who make the greater Swing dance community more inclusive to all.
Whether you are a new or long-time Swing dancer, we want you at Camp Hollywood.
• Our goal is to support dancers and increase diversity by mitigating the three financial barriers to attending a swing dance event (travel, admission, accommodation).
• Scholarship recipients will not be announced; all applicants’ names and information will be kept strictly confidential.
• Although we hope scholarship recipients will want to encourage other dancers’ interest in Swing dancing and Camp Hollywood, scholarships will be awarded without strings. 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 full scholarships (travel, lodging, food, and all event expenses paid), a number of partial scholarships (event expenses + stipend), and additional weekend-pass-only scholarships.
