The Midwest Morris Ale Association operates a financial aid program for individuals and families, established to promote and develop new dancers, musicians, leaders, and organizers. It is a way for the community to encourage attendance and participation, regardless of someone’s financial situation. This program is made possible by generous donations of goods and money in the silent auction and any profits made by the sale of T-shirts.
Awards may cover registration costs. Travel costs and other incidentals, such as T-shirts and lodging upgrades, remain the responsibility of the individual. The application deadline is April 15, 2019.
Once all applications have been received, the committee will meet. The financial aid committee consists of the Officers of the Board and the Ale Czar. You will receive a decision by email by April 25, 2019. Any remaining fees are due by May 3, 2019 at 11:59pm Central Time.
The Ale is a community event, and everyone benefits from having as many of our members in attendance as possible. To this end, please don’t forget to ask if your own team can also assist individuals in attending this annual event. Please ask your team squire to see if your team, as a whole, can assist you in any way.
The identity of those who apply will be held confidential, and will not be made public by anyone associated with the application.
Important: if you are applying for financial aid, you can register before you fill out the application! When registering, select the Financial Aid Request option. Your registration will be recorded but you will not be charged a fee for registration. Selecting the Financial Aid Request option does not constitute applying for financial aid. You must fill out a separate application, linked above.
