THE DUST PALACE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP
The Dust Palace Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for young people aged 10 to 24 with limited resources to access training in the circus arts. The scholarship covers fees for one years’ tuition at the Dust Palace School.
Circus is an amazing tool for self-development, awareness, motivation, communication skills, confidence, coordination and strength. Our scholarship students gain all this plus a deep sense of community with their circus peers.
Auditions for the Scholarship Programme take place in July each year. Auditions for the 2018/19 programme are now over and our students are beginning their second term with us.
Sign up to our newsletter to find out when our next intake occurs. In the meantime, come along to some classes to get a head start!
