This SCHOLARSHIP is offered annually by the Corvallis Hoolyeh Folkdancers to one or more individuals to attend Folk Dance Workshops and special events. In the past this scholarship was used to cover the cost of tuition and room & board for the recipient to attend Stockton Folk Dance Camp. This scholarship also was awarded to partially finance groups of young people and their leaders to attend Balkanalia!
The PURPOSE of the SCHOLARSHIP is twofold:
1) to honor the memories of Jim McCauley, a gentleman and a life-long folk dance enthusiast;
and Hildred Rice, a folk dance teacher and director of the Hoolyehs for MANY years.
2) to enrich the Hoolyeh Folk Dance program with enthusiasm, leadership, and new dances brought back by the scholarship recipients.
