Nelda Drury Scholarships

SAFDF has established a scholarship fund named after Nelda Guerrero Drury, the founder and "patron saint" of the festival. Nelda Drury Scholarships are awarded to individuals to attend and actively participate in SAFDF. They are intended to encourage attendance by new dancers and by dancers who have demonstrated potential to benefit their local folk dance group through what they learn at SAFDF.

General information about these scholarships:

To apply for this scholarship, complete and submit the online application form by February 20, 2020. We will notify you by March 1 whether you have received the scholarship.


Dorm rooms

OLLU granted SAFDF several rooms in nearby student dormitories. These dorms are empty except for SAFDF participants (due to OLLU's spring break) and are within easy walking distance of the festival, making them a very convenient housing option for festival attendees.

The costs for dorm rooms are as follows:

Shared room for entire festival, with linens
Private room for entire festival, with linens
Shared room for entire festival, no linens (bring your own)
Private room for entire festival, no linens (bring your own)
