2012 Annual Harlequin Dance Scholarship

UPDATE: Thanks to the savvy readers who pointed out my error – Unfortunately the scholarship deadline has passed! However this is an annual scholarship. The 2013 version will be open for applications soon. 

Each year, the good folks at Harlequin distribute thousands of dollars to randomly selected dance student applicants “in an effort to provide better opportunities for young people pursuing performing arts careers.” In 2012, Harlequin allocated $25,000 for 10 lucky dancers!
