Tuition Assistance/Need-Based Scholarships

The Hochstein community welcomes students of all ages, proficiency levels, ethnicities, socio-economic levels, and those with special needs in a barrier-free environment that provides artistic opportunities for all. Hochstein's Tuition Assistance/Need-Based Scholarship Program is just one way that we put the School's mission and values into action!

Students requiring tuition assistance in order to enroll in any program at Hochstein may apply through the Dean's Office. 

 

Tuition Assistance/Need-Based Scholarship guidelines are as follows:

 

  • For children enrolling in individual lessons, reduced fees—on a sliding scale—may apply if household income is less than $40,000.
  • For children enrolling in group classes, reduced fees—on a sliding scale—may apply if household income is less than $25,000.
  • For adults enrolling in individual lessons, reduced fees—on a sliding scale—may apply if household income is less than $25,000.

Families whose household incomes fall above the income levels listed above may still be eligible for tuition assistance if they can document extenuating circumstances (i.e. recent divorce, bankruptcy, loss of job, accident/medical condition/expense) specific to their family's situation. 

 

Verification of household income and completion of a Tuition Assistance Application is due prior to registration.
