The Irish Dance Teacher’s Association of North America is proud of the accomplishments of all dancers not only competitively and artistically, but also academically.

To recognize the accomplishments of dancers who excel in the classroom and in the dance studio, the IDTANA is proud to offer academic scholarships:

  • (a) for high school seniors graduating in Spring 2015 and planning to attend a four-year undergraduate college or university, and

  • (b) for students enrolled in a four-year undergraduate college program who will still be enrolled as an undergraduate in a four-year undergraduate college or university during the 15-16 school year.

Winners will be announced in Spring 2016 with scholarships to be presented at the 2016 North American Championships in July 2016. The deadline to submit initial applications is December 19, 2015.
