Financial Aid


The application for 2020 will open in January with awards made in April. To be notified when the application is open, please fill out the info request form.

The YMA financial aid committee awards aid during Spring of 2020. Please apply early, as funds are limited. Note: If you are applying for Financial Aid, send the aid application materials in before registering so you don't have to pay a deposit upfront.

Assistance is awarded on a competitive basis, taking into consideration the following three factors:

  • Financial need of the student’s family

  • Proficiency and enthusiasm of the student in the major artistic area

  • Needs of YMA to strengthen sections or departments

Every applicant will be given due consideration when financial aid is awarded, but because of the number of applicants, not every applicant will receive funds.
