The Lawrence Academy of Music is committed to providing music instruction to every student regardless of family income level. In 2003, the Tutti (the Italian term for "everyone together") Scholarship Fund was born to support this goal. The Girl Choir Empowerment Fund was later established in 2016 specifically for the Academy's Girl Choir program in order to help all girls, regardless of income level, find their voice.
Need-based scholarships are available for all Academy lessons, ensembles, and classes. Awards from our scholarship funds are limited; most families who receive assistance from this fund have an annual household income between $15,000 and $40,000. Families with higher annual income levels are eligible for smaller awards in special circumstances. Please give a thorough narrative if your family has extenuating circumstances such as a job loss or high medical bills. Awards are re-evaluated and renewed annually. Please note that full scholarships are not awarded, but that we will work with you to develop a plan that is affordable.
Continuing students must submit a complete financial aid application, including current Academy teacher recommendation, no later than June 15 for the following academic year. New students must submit complete financial aid applications with music teacher recommendation at the time of enrollment.
