*Please note:  Due to Covid 19, the Department of Dance will not hold on campus scholarship auditions in academic year 20-21.  Applicants whose Modern Dance videos are received by Friday, January 8, 2021, will be contacted by the Chair if they are selected for an interview instead.

Full Tuition Scholarship
The university’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers two highly competitive Full Tuition Scholarships in the Department of Dance to incoming freshmen intending to major in dance. Select students may be recommended for these awards following an audition by the Department of Dance.

Creative Arts Achievement Award
The university’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers a limited number of Creative Arts Achievement Awards (CAAA) to qualifying incoming freshmen students. Given that the focus of the department is on modern and contemporary dance, students who have experience and/or training in these genres are stronger candidates.

Notification for all scholarship awards is made by the Office of Admission in the spring.

Registration and Information
To register for an audition date and for more information about the department, please contact:  Karen Potter, Chair at karen.potter@case.edu.

Scholarship Eligibility
Please note:  The scholarship audition process for the Full Tuition Scholarship and the Creative Arts Achievement Award is separate from the admissions “Arts Supplement process.”

To be eligible for these awards, prospective students must:

  1. Apply to the university (http://admission.case.edu/).
  2. Please send a link to a video for pre-screening by the dance department faculty to:  karen.potter@case.edu.  Once the faculty have viewed the video, a questionnaire will be sent via email.  Following that, an applicant may receive an invitation to audition for the financial awards. The video submission should be 1.5 – 2 minutes in length, and the prospective student should be clearly visible. Do not submit ensemble footage. Video may be from technique class or performance.
  3. Upon review of the video and questionnaire, the faculty will invite select students to attend the on-site scholarship auditions.*

*Please see the note at the top of the page regarding auditions.

Faculty and Guest Artist Concert
Prospective students auditioning in November are invited to attend the fall faculty and guest artist concert on Friday evening. One comp ticket will be issued for the auditioning student upon request. Please notify us in advance if you will purchase tickets for additional family members. Our concerts typically sell out, so we will want to reserve seats for you and your family.
