Scholarship Q&A

Download Summer Camp Scholarship Form

Does it cover ALL costs?
No. Scholarships are given based on individual need, and the parent or guardian must pay any portion not covered by scholarship. Occasionally, full scholarships are given in cases of extreme hardship.

Where does the money come from?
Scholarships are made possible through direct donations of individuals, small businesses and corporations. Scholarship money is not raised from the fees we charge our campers.

Who is eligible?
All prospective campers in financial need with talent, are eligible to apply. Campers who have not been given a scholarship to Arts in CT or attended Arts in CT will be considered FIRST. Applicants who have received assistance in the past may be eligible for scholarships. The scholarship program is not available for groups.

Will I get one for sure?
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee every request will be granted. Each application is reviewed by our scholarship committee and awards are made based on financial and talent.

Is this registering my children or family for camp?
No. Once a scholarship award is offered, you accept, and pay your deposit, you will be registered.

Will I get the show I want?
Unfortunately, there are limited spaces available for scholarship recipients, and we cannot offer a preference date for summer camp.

When are applications due?
The due date for summer camp scholarships is June 30. Our committee will begin awarding scholarships for the summer beginning July 1. Scholarships will be awarded by talent and availability, first-serve basis, so we encourage you to apply early.
