2019 Scholarships/Awards 








Cash Awards 2019 

Updates of International scholarships on Sponsorship page 


AHA Awards is a career platform for young Australasian dancers 11-18 years to further their dance studies within Australasia or abroad.  Scholarships & Cash Awards are available to successful AHA Awards contestants only who enter the competition.

After Quarter Finalist results are announced all Supreme Quarter Finalists will be asked to fill in a form at the registration desk to make three International Scholarship choices in order of preference (prior approval from their current school necessary).  If the contestant is committed to another scholarship then they should write ‘NA’ on form.  They are eligible for a cash prize but not a scholarship or travel grant.

 Scholarship allocation is based on candidates own potential & suitability for that school & so a Semi or Quarter Finalist may receive a scholarship over a Finalist.  

All scholarship recipients must email scholarship sponsor & CC in AHA & current school within 2 weeks of event. The scholarship should be taken within 12 months of event & airfares & application at least 3 months prior to scholarship start date. Contestants who enter this event are expected to honour their scholarship prize but If unable to take a scholarship you MUST inform both scholarship sponsor & AHA immediately or within first 2 weeks after event so it can be transferred.

If the recipient is injured after all airfares etc are made then please use your travel insurance to transfer the flight to a later time after arranging with the scholarship school.

Please Note: Review of recipient's scholarship is compulsory & must be emailed to AHA Awards within one month post scholarship attendance. Details & template at top right on this page.




PLEASE ensure you apply for a travel visa (if needed) before applying for a travel grant.    Travel Insurance is essential.  

I would like all scholarship recipients traveling from Australia to include a quote from Helloworld.
