Unfortunately, our ability to offer financial aid for our 2020-21 school year and 2021 Summer Intensive Program is very limited. Our financial assistance has been halved due to the restriction on class sizes and reduction in overall revenue due to the pandemic. Applications for the 2020-21 school year are closed.

Financial aid applications for the 2021 Summer Intensive Program will be available to students who have placed into the 5-week Pre-Professional Program starting Monday, January 11. Financial assistance is not available for students attending the 3-week program. The deadline for all applications is February 25.

All applications will be considered together at once by a Scholarship Committee after the deadline closes. Awards will be assessed based on criteria, including need, tenure, merit, gender, and racial identity. We cannot apply financial assistance to your account if your student is already registered for the program, so please wait until our Scholarship Committee has reviewed your application and sent your results prior to registering. Applicants will be notified of their aplication results by Wednesday, March 3.

Please understand we are doing our best to accommodate all our passionate and talented students within the confines of this difficult situation. We will continue to monitor classes and our financial situation, adjusting and adding spaces as we are able.
