TRYPS endeavors to offer partial scholarships to every child who is in need of assistance to cover tuition expenses.
Due to the growing number of scholarship requests, we now require all families to fill out formal requests for a scholarship. Whether you are new to the TRYPS family or have worked with us numerous times, each application process will require this paperwork.
Scholarships are based on financial need and require:
A completed APPLICATION FORM– click HERE to download the document
A current ENROLLMENT FORM for a class or camp or production PERMISSION FORM – forms are found on the information and audition pages for each specific camp, class, and production.
All application requests must be made in advance.
No scholarship will be awarded after a class or camp or production begins.
Two completed RECOMMENDATION FORMS from a teacher or guidance counselor. – click HERE to download the document. If a student is home-schooled, recommendations will be accepted from family friends.
Acceptance by the child and family to fulfill a VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITY based on the amount of the scholarship itself. This can include volunteering at the TRYPS office, scene painting, set building, costume assistance, etc.
If a scholarship is awarded and the volunteer responsibility is not adequately fulfilled, a student will forego scholarship consideration for the following semester.
The TRYPS staff will discuss your application and volunteer responsibility with you. We will fill out a formal letter of agreement with you in exchange for your tuition waiver amount.
TRYPS does not offer 100% of scholarships due to the number of students who require financial assistance.
TRYPS does offer 25%, 50% & 75% of scholarships that also require a volunteer responsibility.
TRYPS does accept multiple payments from families to ease any burden of tuition payments.
Application information remains confidential.
