2017 Recipient
The Ballet in the City Scholarship (formerly The Misty Copeland Scholarship) was established by Ballet in the City founder Jessica Wallis and Misty Copeland in 2015. To honor Ms. Copeland, Ballet in the City annually awards this scholarship to provide opportunities for African American dancers in classical ballet.

To continue this legacy, Ballet in the City will award two $350 scholarships to one male and one female African American dancer in 2018. The 2018 recipients should be not only hardworking in the studio, but also demonstrate upstanding character.

Applications for the 2018 Ballet in the City Scholarship will open in January 2018.
