Note that limited scholarships are available to cover tuition costs. A recent change: ALL of our scholarships are now based on financial need AND merit and WILL include a work-study element, without exception. Examples of work may include chair setup, making copies, and other logistical tasks as assigned. If you are interested in this program, please include a paragraph in your email stating why you feel you would be a good candidate for this award and your willingness to accept the conditions mentioned above. If you are selected, you would be expected to put in a certain number of hours (TBD) each week on assigned tasks in addition to maintaining your attendance at all required rehearsals. If you have any questions about this program, feel free to ask.
