A limited number of partial and full tuition scholarships for ballet classes only are offered by Maine State Ballet to qualified students ages 8 and up. They are offered for the Dance School Year (September to May) and/or Summer Ballet Intensive Workshop as determined by the Artistic Staff. Maine State Ballet reserves the right to withdraw financial aid at any time if recipients fail to meet scholarship standards.
Financial Assistance Scholarships
Funding is awarded based mostly on financial need (dance potential & aptitude, and commitment are also considered). Financial Assistance applicants need to apply for each session separately (Dance School Year and Summer Ballet Intensive Workshop) by filling in the application form and attaching all required tax forms. Applicants must apply for Fall and Summer sessions separately. Recipients may re-apply for Fall and Summer sessions as well.
