Branch Youth Fund is now up and running – the documents setting up the Fund are
now available here Statement of Purpose and Terms .
Branch Youth Fund is for use for events, activities or resources that encourage
or facilitate youth Scottish country dancing in New Zealand - which includes
encouraging JAMs to continue dancing as they transition to university and work.
The age criterion therefore stretches out to 30, rather than the JAMs’ maximum
age of 19.
Fund will only pay grants from interest on the funds held – so the Management
Committee are also happy to receive donations
‘tagged’ for youth dancing, which will be added to the Branch Youth Fund
dancers, teachers or organisers of events can apply for funds for any future project
which is intended to encourage youth dancing or dancers in New Zealand.
Preference will be given to RSCDS members (including JAMs).

year. Please read the full Application Form and the Statement of Purpose and
Terms carefully, so you know what you can apply for, and what you can’t; and
what we will expect of you if you are awarded a grant.
