Any dancer wishing to become a square dance caller or round dance cuer or any current caller/cuer wishing to upgrade skills may apply to the Nova Scotia Square and Round Dance Federation for a bursary to help offset the expenses incurred. Bursaries are also available from the National Society (use link below).
New callers/cuers and applicants from remote areas will be given preference over callers/cuers wanting refresher training. Preference will also be given to those wishing to attend Canadian schools and clinics.
Bursary applications should be submitted to the Federation President or Secretary at least two months before the school. Applications are normally discussed during the Spring Executive meeting and the maximum allotted in the budget is two bursaries per year.
For the first application by a new leader the maximum is $500 per school.
For an existing leader the maximum is $200 per school.
The bursary will be paid to the applicant upon receipt of report from the school or clinic, showing attendance and participation.
