Financial assistance is available for the September-May school year and for Milwaukee Ballet’s Pre-Professional Summer Intensive Program.  Funding is not available for non-intensive summer classes or the Intermediate Intensive Program.

Funds for the 2018-19 school year are no longer being accepted, as funds have been distributed.  Applications for the 2019-20 school year will be available in June.

Applications for the 2019 Summer Intensive Program are available for students who have been accepted into the Pre-Professional (6-week) Program and are due by March 20.  Applications results will be sent in time for the March 30 registration deadline.

Funding is limited and applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis and is only available for tuition.  It is in your best interest to complete the application early to ensure funding and class openings.  Financial assistance is not available for housing or meal plans.

Before starting your application, gather your most recent federal and state tax returns, as these documents are a required part of the application process.

When asked in the application what your family can afford to pay, please indicate this in relation to only the $3025 tuition (not housing or meals) part of the program expense.

* Please wait for your financial assistance packet to arrive via email before registering, as financial assistance cannot be applied to your account after your child is registered.
