Scholarships and Financial Aid
Each year, more than thirty percent of our participants receive need- or merit-based financial aid. Scholarships are awarded based on level of musicianship (as demonstrated by audition video), documented financial need (including income, expenses, and special circumstances), and a financial-aid application essay. All scholarships are partial-tuition and typically range from $150-$300. If you need financial assistance, be sure to fill out the appropriate section on your GetAcceptd application.
Applicants are encouraged to seek out sponsors in their communities, e.g. schools, arts or civic organizations, private donors, and local businesses. Past participants have successfully found support to pay tuition and travel expenses through grants, foundations, artistic venues and educational organizations, donations from family and friends, and benefit concerts.
