New UKEDC Grants & Scholarships

September 20, 2020

The UKEDC is delighted to announce the launch of its new grants and scholarships scheme to support individuals and events within the equality dance community. These are open to both members and non-members of the UKEDC.

UKEDC Dance Scholarships

The UKEDC is offering two scholarships of £250 each to individuals who intend to compete in equality dance events.  The deadline for applications is 15 November 2020 and the rules and application forms available in the Rules section of our website. Please read these carefully as they set out the eligibility criteria and the terms and conditions for the scholarships.

The applications will be reviewed by the UKEDC Scholarship Panel:

Tom Dane (UKEDC Treasurer)
Jo Taylor (UKEDC Membership Secretary)
Julie Tomkins (UKEDC Committee Member)

The final awards will be made at our committee meeting on 4 December 2020

UKEDC Community Grants

As well as the individual scholarships, the UKEDC is providing two grants of £250 each to support events and projects that help promote equality dancing.  These can be applied for at any time, but ideally at least 90 days before the event is to be held. We will do our best to consider applications made with shorter notice, but we cannot guarantee that we will do so.  

The grant application form which contains details of the eligibility criteria and the terms and conditions is available in the Rules section of our website.

If you have any questions about either the grants or the scholarships, please contact treasurer@ukedc.org.
