Financial Aid

Shakespeare Youth Festival offers partial scholarships to qualifying students for all our classes. Scholarship space is limited, based on need and fills on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Applicants are required to fill out a form outlining their financial need, and to submit documentation supporting their need (please see form for required docs). (Please note: The Financial Aid form does not guarantee a spot in the class. If we are able to offer a scholarship, we will send you information regarding the registration process.)
  • Students must arrive on time for class, and must have no unexcused absences. To arrange an excused absence, please email 24 hours before class begins. In case of emergency, call 323-356-8962 as soon as possible.
  • Inappropriate behavior in class could affect future scholarship eligibility and may result in dismissal from class.
  • If you have received a scholarship in the past, you do not need to fill out the form a second time – please contact us to request a continuation.

Scholarship Criteria and Conditions

We want all children to be able to participate in our program, and we make it our policy to turn no one away for inability to pay. That said, we depend on tuition to cover our expenses, and keep our organization going. We will review your application and contact you with an amount that can be covered with a scholarship.
