Financial Aid & Scholarships

The Dance program values students who dedicate themselves to the program throughout their time at Loyola. These students demonstrate personal and artistic growth, as well as commitment to bettering the Loyola dance community.

In recognition of these values, the Dance program offers scholarships and fellowships to current dance students.  There are currently no specific Dance scholarships for incoming students. However, we highly encourage these students to pursue general Loyola scholarships as well as outside opportunities.
