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 online application process is now available with a priority deadline of June 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 (2018 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 July 22 for the 2019-20 academic year. Applications received after June 30 will be processed on a first come first serve basis, pending funding availability after July 22.
