Tuition and Scholarships

SCHOLARSHIPS & FEES

WORK-STUDY: There are numerous opportunities to earn a significant discount on tuition in exchange for singing in the festival choir, playing in an orchestra, helping with riser duty, etc. These are set up when offers go out and can reduce your costs significantly.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Each student who is accepted is eligible for scholarships which are set up when we make offers. Scholarships can further defray the total tuition, room and board costs. They can be based on merit or a statement of need.
