How does spending seven weeks on a 140-acre idyllic campus in Long Island exploring visual and performing arts over the summer sound? Campers can choose from more than 70 classes to “major” and “minor” in a variety of artistic disciplines, including creative writing, chess, theater, dance, or even nature and sustainability. Sounds amazing, right? It’s a reality at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts.
NYC and Long Island students between the ages of 7 – 18 years old and in grades 2 – 12, are eligible for a scholarship to Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts. The Uniquely U scholarship provides full-tuition for the seven-week program, which runs June 29 – August 14, 2020.
Students will need to submit a video with their application. Certain disciplines will need to include examples of their work, i.e. they want up to five images for visual artists, pages from creative writers, videos of dance, etc. Recipients will be selected based on two criteria: passion and creativity.
Another cool facet of the scholarship is that they will award the school with the highest number of Uniquely U applications a School Scholarship, allowing the school to award a student with a full scholarship to the Usdan.
Deadline to apply is February 17, 2020.
