Due to the generosity of many individuals and charitable foundations the Preparatory awards nearly $150,000 in general fund scholarships on an annual basis. The scholarship program is dedicated to provide need-based support to as many families as possible. Limited merit-based support is available for the audition-based programs.
The Fall term online application process will open on March 15 with a priority deadline of April 30. Once we receive your application, you’ll receive instructions on how to have your teacher complete an online reference form as well as, instruction to safely and securely upload your required financial forms (2019 Federal tax return, tax schedules, W-2, and 1099 forms) in order to be considered for a scholarship. Both private lessons and group classes are eligible for scholarship support, and both youth and adult students are eligible to apply.
Students who submit the application and all supporting documentation by the priority deadline will be notified of scholarship eligibility and amount by May 31 for the Fall 2020 term. Applications received after April 30 will be processed on a first come first serve basis, pending funding availability.
