Scholarships

For an application for scholarship funding to help you attend the Southwest Regional Organizers Conference, please click here.

Scholarship funds are available thanks to generous grant contributions from the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS), Phoenix Traditional Music & Dance (PHXTMD), other dance groups, and many individuals (including generous conference participants).  We are very grateful to these fine folks, not just for being part of this conference, but for their ongoing work to support traditional social dance traditions throughout the region.

Scholarship awards would cover a portion of the conference fee. We hope to be able to offer as much as $100 for the maximum individual award, but this depends in large part on the success of our current fundraising efforts as well as the number of applicants.

We are actively seeking donations to the Scholarship Fund, so please let us know if you think of any individuals or groups who would be interested in supporting this very worthy cause!  To contribute to the scholarship fund, send a check (payable to CDSS, with “SWROC scholarship” in the memo) ℅ Linda Nieman SWROC Registrar, PO Box 50066, Phoenix, AZ 85076.

Other Sources of Support

We encourage attendees to consider creative options to pay for the conference. Check out the Fund Your Attendance page for a few such ideas.
