It is not the intent of the Children’s Arts Network or its programs to exclude interested students because of unfortunate financial limitations. We encourage families to apply for financial aid if it is needed. Financial aid applications are considered by members of the Children’s Arts Network Board of Directors and are awarded based on need. Financial aid applies to tuition only. Extended hours supervision is available at a rate of $5.00 per day per child.
A financial aid application is not considered complete until ALL THREE of the following have been received:
1. A complete financial aid application. The online form is below.
Please note that all blanks are required. Applications with blanks will not be considered. If an item does not apply to you, please enter N/A.
2. ONE document selected from any of the following:
- Free or reduced price lunch award letter or
- SNAP award letter or
- AFDC case number or
- FDPIR case number or
- Page one of IRS Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ for 2014
Your chosen document may be scanned and e-mailed to email@example.com, or you may take a picture and text it to that same e-mail address.
3. A recommendation form submitted by your child’s teacher, school principal, or school counselor. Homeschooled children should have a recommendation submitted by one of their activities’ directors, troop leader, or similar.
The recommendation form may be completed online by clicking here.
All items must be received by April 30 to be considered. Families will be notified within the first full week of May.
It is not necessary to include the $150 deposit when you are applying for financial aid.
All financial aid applications and recommendations are considered confidential and will not be made available to any individual or group not directly concerned with the granting of Artworks scholarships. No scholarship application will be considered unless the scholarship committee believes that the applicant will make a commitment to attend regularly and fully participate in the program.
Financial aid awardees are expected to attend every day. Should an awarded child be absent for more than one day for a reason other than illness or documented family emergency, the parent or guardian forfeits the aid and is responsible for paying the tuition for that session.
