Scholarships and Awards

Creative and Performing Arts Scholarships (CAPA)

A small number of Creative and Performing Arts Scholarships (equivalent to in-state tuition) are awarded each year for gifted and talented freshman/transfer Dance Majors. Applicants must be enrolling for the first time on this campus. Auditions are held each winter for the following academic year.

Audition Date: Monday, December 16th, 2019, 11:00AM - 2:30PM

Applications Due: Wednesday, December 11th, 2019 for Fall 2020 Applicants

CAPA awards may also, on occasion, be made to students currently in the program.

**Please note that an audition is not required to declare Dance as your major, and your participation in the audition does not guarantee admission to the University of Maryland. The UMD Admissions Office will contact students with official admission decisions by the dates indicated on the Admissions website.**
