Creative Arts Workshop is committed to making its classes available to the broadest possible audience and is pleased to be able to offer financial assistance to make the arts more available to more people. We thank the generous donors who make this possible, and are grateful to our Scholarship Committee for their generosity of time and commitment to this program.
Financial assistance decisions are based on both available funding and student need. Funding permitting, we offer partial coverage of tuition for a class or a full scholarship (see below for scholarship opportunities), by semester. Consideration for assistance is first given to those who have not previously received aid from CAW and to those who can show greatest financial need. Application for assistance does not guarantee an award, nor does a prior award.
Your application will be reviewed by CAW’s Scholarship Committee and scored based on need. Unused awards cannot be transferred to another term.
Forms are available here or from the registrar.
