Project B was originally created by the RAD to inspire the next generation of male dancers. The Project B Scholarship was created by the New Zealand School of Dance and the RAD New Zealand to assist talented young men who wish to extend their ballet training.
The underlying criteria for the scholarship are: young male applicants aged 10-16, who are already enrolled in RAD ballet classes and would not otherwise be able to afford enrolment in the NZSD Scholars Programme. The value of the sponsorship is $700.00, which contributes towards fees for the NZSD Scholars Programme and/or towards some travel costs.
Applicants can apply to use this scholarship as either a National or Wellington Scholar in 2024.
A scholarship committee assesses applications. The scholarship recipient will be announced after the Scholars Programme Audtions.
If you wish to apply to the Project B Scholarship and you are not a current NZSD Scholar, please ensure you complete both the Scholars application and the Project B Scholarship form.
Applications for 2023 have now closed.
