Muriel Boyle Memorial Awards

Muriel Boyle: Highland Dancer, Teacher, Judge, and benefactor

Since 2004, the SHDA has been proud to offer three Muriel Boyle Memorial Awards annually. Muriel was a dancer, teacher, and judge who loved highland dancing. This passion for dancing is evident in her generous donation to the Saskatoon Highland Dancing Association following her passing in 2003.

Dancers of SHDA are encouraged to apply for one of the yearly scholarships awarded to one of each of pre-premier, junior premier and senior premier dancer. A dancer may apply each year, but only be awarded the scholarship not more than once every three years.

A complete application form may be downloaded. Date for submission each year is January 15th.



All aspects of highland dancing form the basis for evaluating applications for the award:

  • Competitive participation
  • Recreational/Performance participation
  • Character
  • Knowledge of and Learning about Scottish Culture and Highland Dancing
  • Setting and Achievement of goals
