Champaign Urbana Ballet is committed to the education and training of young dancers. Through its Scholarship Program, CU Ballet is able to make a profound difference in the lives of talented young people who may not have the financial means to pursue their dream of a life of dance.
Champaign Urbana Ballet awards merit scholarships based on demonstrated financial need as well as merit to company and/or apprentice dancers to assist in the dancer’s company and training costs. Awards are conditional upon the commitment of the dancer to participate throughout the entire season. Individual awards may depend on the number of dancers applying and qualifying for this program. Recipients may receive an award in subsequent years, but must re-apply each year. To donate to CU Ballet's Scholarship Program,
Champaign Urbana Ballet is a not-for-profit organization, and contributions are tax-deductible.
