Scholarships & Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Financial aid is awarded on a rolling basis as funds are available, and applications are reviewed throughout the year. 

Students may apply by completing the Financial Aid Application Form and submitting any supporting documents to the Conservatory. Applications will be evaluated and students notified of results when process is completed. 

Please note:

Families must submit one financial aid application per child.

Also, this form requires two documents be uploaded: 

  1. A PDF of your most recent federal tax return 
  2. A brief need-based statement written by the parent or guardian of the student explaining the need for financial assistance.

MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS

Merit Scholarships are awarded once per academic year, and are based upon the student’s demonstrated proficiency, disciplined music study habits, and commitment to excellence.

To be considered, please complete our Merit Scholarship application form by May 1

Please note: 

Students applying for Merit Scholarships must also fill out our Financial Aid Application Form as some scholarships require that students demonstrate financial need. Not filling out the Conservatory's Financial Aid Application Form could disqualify applicants from some awards.

Also, this form requires you submit a YouTube link to your video audition:

  1. Record a video (3-5 minutes in length) of a performance of a piece from memory. (NOTE: Recitals provide an ideal opportunity to obtain this recording.)
  2. Upload the video to YouTube, and label with the name of the piece, movement, composer, and student name.
  3. Mark the video as “Unlisted."
