We offer two types of scholarships:



Our Merit Scholarship is a set award of $1500 off tuition open to all students. You will need to submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher, preferably a media or theatre teacher.



Our Financial Need Scholarship is a flexible based on financial information submitted with your application. We work with each student to find a tuition level that is possible for them.  You will need a reference from a teacher, preferably a theatre or film teacher.  If you attend a fee paying school, you will need to be on scholarship at your school to qualify for this award. For the Acting Program, we encourage you to send an audition monologue via YouTube link.
