We require a $150 USD security deposit that will be returned to the student the day before their departure on the condition that there was no damage done to the room or apartment. Students or parents will ultimately be responsible for loss or damage that exceeds the $150 security deposit.
If you are accepted into the program all students automatically receive a scholarship of $300. However, there are many opportunities for more financial assistance based on your audition, recommendation(s) and financial need. If you want to request financial assistance please write us and we will personally attend your request. We plan on giving out up to $40,000 worth of scholarships this year.
We also encourage you to seek out extra financial assistance from your local churches, schools, governments, and community organizations to help with the cost.
