2023 Summer Study Application – Deadline Extended February 1, 2023
We are so pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for Alumni & Friends Summer Study Grants for Summer 2023! The link to the application form is at the bottom of this page so please read the whole page to lead more about the scholarships. Scholarships are available to juniors, sophomores, and freshmen, who may be eligible to receive financial assistance for supplemental study in their arts discipline during the summer of 2023. In the application form you will see that we request the latest copy of your transcript, consent from a parent/guardian, and the first two pages of your guardian/family’s 2021 IRS 1040 tax return (we require the tax return for all parents/guardians). Get your transcript by filling out this transcript request form.
IF YOU BELIEVE YOU QUALIFY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP BUT YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE THE TAX DOCUMENTS FROM 2021, PLEASE EMAIL email@example.com TO LET US KNOW. WE WANT TO HELP!
Please read the following before filling out the application:
- AWARD AMOUNTS WILL VARY DEPENDING ON STUDENT FINANCIAL NEED
- Funding is limited – FINANCIAL AID AWARDS ARE USUALLY PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIPS; consider applying for numerous programs in different price ranges (for example, we will NOT consider funding a program that costs $3000 or more unless you receive a scholarship directly from the program to cover the bulk of the cost)
- Scholarships are only for program costs and not for room and board or travel; please consider local New York City-based summer study opportunities
- Programs or lessons must be related to your studio (no academic, cultural, or environmental programs)
- Juniors are given priority as they are preparing to apply to colleges/conservatories, but we do give scholarships to sophomores and freshmen
- All grants are paid directly to the summer program, class, or teacher; no money is given directly to students
- You may receive a grant from Alumni & Friends even if you have not yet applied to a program and are still researching
- You may apply for a grant if you have applied but have not yet heard if you have been accepted to a summer program
- For programs that offer financial aid, you must show proof that you applied to the institution directly for financial aid
- International programs will not be considered
