FUSTA is pleased to offer two academic scholarships for Highland Dancers to continue their education.  An applicant for either scholarship must be a U.S. resident who is a member in good standing of FUSTA or whose dance teacher is a FUSTA member in good standing.  Each scholarship may be won only once.

The Whittlesey Memorial Scholarship may be applied for by current-year registered dancers who are in college, graduate school or other educational programs.
