All scholarship and financial aid is based on funds available for any given year. Only students 18 years and younger, still in high school, and in Level 1-6 may apply. Each student’s ability, attendance, commitment, attitude, and maturity will be taken into consideration. Scholarship and financial aid recipients serve as important role models for the school and will be required to abide by the scholarship/financial aid agreement.
Scholarships are available for the School Year Program and for the Summer Programs. The application process for both programs are independent of each other.
Scholarships are awarded only at the beginning of the School Year Program and at the beginning of the Summer Programs, and at the discretion of the KSCB Board of Directors. Scholarships are valid for the current school year only.
Upon review of qualification for financial assistance, applicants will be ranked in order of assistance priority based on teacher/instructor feedback regarding the students:
- Level of commitment
- Level of effort
- Level of potential
- Level of aspiration
Scholarship recipients will meet with the school directors to define a work-study structure. Recipients will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their personal investment in their ballet education by taking on assigned responsibilities around the studio.
The work assignments will be mutually agreed upon depending on age and schedule. Possible work assignments may include cleaning the studio floors, vacuuming the common areas, tending to the trash, or volunteering at KSCB events.
