Financial aid and hardship assistance are available to those who qualify. Financial aid is calculated based on federal poverty guidelines. Hardship is determined based on extenuating life circumstances (e.g., job loss, medical expenses) and is available for two consecutive years.
Those interested in applying for financial aid and/or hardship must complete and submit an application. Aid offers must be accepted and enrollment taken place within 35 days of notification or the aid will be revoked. Once revoked, the interested party will need to reapply.
Submitting an application for financial aid and/or hardship does not guarantee assistance will be provided as funding is limited. Those receiving financial aid and/or hardship must reapply at the start of every school year.
The Center for Music provides annual merit scholarships to its current music students. Merit scholarships are available for private lessons, Suzuki lessons, J@MS Program (Jazz at the Music Settlement), and Rock & Pop Academy.
Auditions are held every late winter/early spring and the scholarships are put toward tuition for the upcoming school year. Those wishing to audition for a merit scholarship must meet the minimum requirements established by their department.
Scholarship recipients must complete a series of requirements during the school year, which may include performing at The Music Settlement, writing a thank you letter to their donors, and fulfilling a service requirement.

The Music Settlement is a joyous space, for me and many. Thank you for being a magical part of my life.
