Discover Uniquely U
Calling all visual artists, performing artists, creative writers, and Nature & Sustainability enthusiasts!
- Do you live in NYC or Long Island?
- Are you in kindergarten or 1st grade?
For the first year ever, we are expanding Uniquely U to include students in our Discovery program. We welcome students in kindergarten and 1st grade to apply for Discover Uniquely U — a scholarship search that celebrates the spectacular creativity and self-expression of our youngest students.
Show us what makes you U, and you could be selected to receive a full 8-week scholarship including busing (valued at $8,200) to Usdan for the Summer 2022 season (June 27 to August 19). But, it doesn’t end there! For every summer following that they are eligible to attend, Discover Uniquely U recipients receive a 75% tuition discount.
Additionally, all Discover Uniquely U applications will be counted towards our School Scholarship, which is awarded to the school/institution yielding the most Uniquely U applications.
How do I apply?
Answer one of the following prompts in a video that is up to 3 minutes long. Along with your video, submit the artwork that you are sharing in one or multiple of Usdan’s disciplines of: Visual Art, Creative Writing, Dance, Music, and Theater. Parents and caregivers are welcome to assist their children through this process.
- Share an artwork you have made that is important to you. Explain what makes it meaningful to you.
- Create a new piece of artwork about a magical moment that you have experienced. Tell us about the moment and what questions it left you with.
