MAPA offers two different scholarship opportunities:

Financial Aid – Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and the student’s commitment to the performing arts.

Master Plan – Scholarships are awarded to dance students with an unprecedented commitment to honing their craft. Enroll in nine classes and become eligible to receive free classes after the first paid nine! All nine classes must be taken by one student. Please note: Master Plan Scholarships are limited in number and are not guaranteed.

Funding comes from MAPA’s Hawaii Community Foundation Fund, Brownee Browne Scholarship Fund, Visitor Industry Charity Walk and the generosity of individual donors.

Scholarship Applicants must be:

  • A Maui resident
  • 7-18 years old
  • Or entering 2nd grade or higher (public, private, or home school)

To ensure integrity, MAPA’s Board of Directors adopted the following policies and guidelines:

  1. As respected and honored members of MAPA, scholarship recipients agree to conduct themselves as professionals, attend all scheduled classes and honor all work time commitments.
  2. Scholarship recipients may study only at MAPA sponsored classes during the scholarship period and may not study at another studio or be a member of another dance group or drama group offering the same type of classes. Exceptions are made for school and church activities.
  3. Scholarship recipients and their families may be asked to volunteer their time toward MAPA projects as designated by the office.
  4. Scholarship awards may be rescinded if a student fails to attend required classes; perform specifically required scholarship duties; comply with above guidelines, or behave properly.

Payment plans and scholarships are only available through the office.
