A limited number of scholarships and Financial Aid opportunities are available and are awarded on the basis of attendance, class performance, talent and potential for a professional career. Scholarships or financial aid opportunities are distributed at the discretion of the Academy Director, in consultation with the faculty. These are granted by session; therefore, students must apply each session. Financial Aid Applications can be obtained through the Academy Administrator. Recipients are expected to help with service towards Ballet West and the Academy as part of their contract agreement, and as needed. All recipients are still required to submit a completed registration form. All recipients will be asked to review and sign a Scholarship/Financial Aid Contract stating that they understand and that they will comply with the criteria required of the student.
