“Existing in a lower-income family, it is difficult for interests and talents to be served or grown. Attending a class on scholarship offered our son not only a great experience, but also a place of pride knowing he was deserving of the opportunity.” —Parent of Scholarship Recipient

Current Scholarship Opportunities*

Need-based scholarships are available for 2020 Summer Youth Programs. No other scholarships are currently available.

Scholarship applications for summer youth programs will be reviewed on a weekly basis on Fridays, beginning on February 7. 

Scholarships are dependent on funding and are distributed until funds are depleted. Scholarship applications are reviewed weekly on Fridays. Scholarship awards will be emailed to applicants by the end of the day the following Monday. Please do not register for a class until you have received notice about your application. Attendance in a class using a scholarship is on a space available basis. A scholarship does not guarantee a spot in a class. Only one scholarship will be awarded per child, per family.
