Scholarship Fund

PHGA values supporting local pipers, drummers and dancers through its scholarship program at the Games.

John McLoughlin Dance Scholarships:

John McLouglin Highland Dance Scholarships are awarded annually in honor of Scottish born surgeon Dr. John McLouglin, the Chief Factor of the Hudson Bay Fort Vancouver. As Chief Factor, Dr. McLoughlin was responsible for the Oregon Territory, now known as the state of Oregon and Clark County, Washington.

Only Premier Highland dancers who reside in 'the McLoughlin territory' are eligible for the scholarships. A $50.00 scholarship and a plaque is awarded to the Premier dancer in each age group with the highest aggregate points in all dancing events excluding the special challenge events. The scholarship is paid directly to the winner's Highland Dance teacher.
