Family Access Network (FAN) Scholarships

In an effort to remove barriers and encourage a child’s success, Family Access Network (FAN) provides needy students with dance scholarships (one dance class per approved student). FAN encourages scholarship recipients to share some of the cost of their dance whenever possible – discuss possibilities with your FAN advocate. FAN advocates are located in all public schools in Deschutes County and serve families living in poverty with children ages 0-18. The FAN Office in Sisters is located in the Sisters School District Office. Advocates work hand in hand with families to connect them to food, shelter, clothing, heating, school supplies, health services, or whatever the need, such as dance classes. Please contact your FAN advocates to complete an application and to learn more about their programs:
