The Paulette Carson Scholarship

The Paulette Carson Scholarship was established by the will of Paulette Berthe Carson who died in 2003. Paulette had a love of ballet from childhood and during her life she taught ballet to children of the British royal family and performed at the Moulin Rouge in Paris. She wished to help and inspire young ballet dancers and she established the scholarship in order to provide young classical ballet dancers with the opportunity to fully realise their ambitions and dreams. The full scholarship value is $7,500, and a partial scholarship worth $4,000 is also available.
