The Actors Fund Announces 2019 Career Transition for Dancers Grant Program

Published February 22, 2019   |  By Musical Artists  |  Post in All Areas

The Actors Fund is pleased to announce the Career Transition For Dancers grant program for 2019, plus a remote orientation process beginning February 28th, 2019.

New this spring, dancers with at least 5 years professional performing experience can apply for Professional Development grants ($1,000), which can be used to create a non-dance income as well as build marketable skills.

Scholarships for undergraduate (up to $2,000) and graduate degrees (up to $,5000) are also offered to dancers with at least 7 years professional dance experience.

To learn about additional application criteria as well as the range of services offered by The Actors Fund, dance professionals can register for a bi-weekly national dancer orientation.

All dancers, from early career to mid-career to retired from performing, can work with career counselors – at no cost - in person or remotely.

Information about how The Actors Fund serves the dance community across the country and the Career Transition For Dancers program can be found on www.actorsfund.org.
