Herräng Scholarship Program 2023
Over the last twenty years, Herräng Dance Camp has been supporting various discount systems for the summer event. Once called the Herräng Fund, the administration has in recent years launched a new system called Scholarship Program. After the events surrounding the coronavirus, we are happy to announce that the program is now back for 2023!
The Scholarship Program supports dancers from three different countries each year. The countries chosen are very often ones where the financial reality is significantly different to the Western world. We invite dancers from those countries to participate in one full-time program in Herräng at a 50% discount. A maximum of 60 spots (20 spots per week) are available and will be given on a first come first served basis.
For the summer of 2023, the following countries have been chosen:
The selected countries are the same as in 2020, when the camp could not take place due to the coronavirus situation. At that time, we had already assigned all the scholarships before having to cancel the event. This year, we will first consider all the people who have already been accepted for 2020, so they can finally make use of their scholarship. Any remaining places will then be given to new applicants.
Send an individual email (no group registrations) directly to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your full name, complete with your street address, email address, telephone number and which week, discipline and level you would like to participate in. For now, please do not register for any classes. Once we have received your message, we will return to you as soon as possible with our confirmation letter and further details on how to proceed.
The Scholarship Program will open at 18.00 Swedish time on 15 March 2023. Please note that applications sent before this time and date will not be considered.
The Scholarship Program for 2023 is available for the following weeks and disciplines:
Week 1: all programs of one-week fulltime classes except Swing Kids and Swing Teens
Week 2: all programs of one-week fulltime classes
Week 3: all programs of one-week fulltime classes
It is not possible to apply for a scholarship for party passes only.
Before applying, please make sure that you fulfill the criteria below:
- You must hold a passport from one of the three countries chosen by us this year
- You must permanently be residing in one of the three countries by us this year
- You must be in need of financial support in order to attend Herräng Dance Camp
Please also note that each person can only apply for a discount for one week, not multiple weeks, and that the application is for the individual only (your spot cannot be passed onto someone else). For further information, please contact our office at email@example.com.
FOR PEOPLE FROM UKRAINE AND THE EARTHQUAKE AREAS IN TURKEY
We regret that we do not have enough Scholarships this year to include two additional countries in addition to the 2020 Scholarships. However, we would like to offer free General Accommodation or tent spots for HDC 2023 to all visitors from Ukraine and the earthquake areas in Turkey. Please contact us for this via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
