This week, Usdan launched our sixth annual Uniquely U scholarship search. The program rewards the creativity and self-expression of young artists in kindergarten through 12th grade. Six awardees will each receive an eight-week scholarship to Usdan for the Summer 2023 season. Additionally, the school with the most student submissions will be awarded the School Scholarship and will have the opportunity to choose a students from their community to attend Usdan on a full scholarship.

“The Uniquely U scholarship search gives us an opportunity to discover children with immense creativity who may not be aware of Usdan or whose parents are looking for a lower camp tuition cost,” stated Lauren Brandt Schloss, Executive Director of Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts. “If you have a young artist in your life who is passionate about expressing themselves through writing, dance, music, theater, or visual art, is searching for ‘their people,’ and would benefit from a summer immersed in nature, Usdan is the place for them. Encourage them to apply for this scholarship and show us what makes them uniquely them.”

“Usdan was a truly magical experience,” said Jesse Mccoy, Uniquely U 2021 recipient. “At Usdan, I made the best friends and had the most fun ever. I spent the summer performing on the coolest stage, learning awesome choreography for a musical, swimming in the pools, doing archery, and learning about nature. All in all, it was the best summer of my life.”
