Dance Team Scholarships

Promising new student leaders who are committed to participating in North Park University’s recreational cheer, dance, and step teams are invited to audition for annually renewable scholarships of up to $1,000. Women and men in these three groups bolster the University’s team spirit at athletic competitions and perform at community events and competitions throughout the year. (Please note that these groups are not intercollegiate athletic teams; as an NCAA Division III university, North Park is not able to offer athletic scholarships.) Learn more.
