Candidates will be judged based on service to MDA (60%) and five (5) test scores of any level (40%). Weighing the work credits allows an applicant with a lower test average achieve a higher overall score for this award than a person with just a higher test average.
Introductory, Pas de Deux, Quadrille, and Musical Freestyle are not eligible.
This award relies upon MDA Show Scores and MDA Work Credits. These are tracked on MDA's website, so applicants do not need to send copies of tests.
Application for this grant must be submitted online by 11:59 pm on November 15, 2016. Applications are automatically time stamped.
