2nd Annual Scholarship Brunch Fundraiser

Sunday, May 19th at 11:30AM


The Cornish Extension Programs along with Summer at Cornish and Preparatory Dance invite you to join us for our Annual Scholarship Brunch Fundraiser!  

This event is about raising awareness and funds for our at-need scholarship program.  The significance of this event cannot be overstated. The Extension Programs have awarded over $145,000 in need-based scholarship funds to over 230 national and international students across all programs since 2015.  These scholarships have been vital in fulfilling the dreams our students whether they attend our year long programming or are only with us for the summer. Many students have gone on to college programs and professional companies. Their goals would not have been realized without the financial help of scholarship funds.

There will be a catered meal, dance performance, and live music!  Proceeds from the event benefit our need-based scholarship fund so that all inspiring young artists are able to access our programming whether it be in dance, music, art, or more!
