ISSI Scholarships

Please note that all scholarship applications will be completed online this year. Please upload your audition to YouTube or other online media source as you have to provide your audition URL on your application.

You can find the scholarship application by clicking on the "Registration" tab on the toolbar. 

Financial Aid and Scholarship applications must be submitted on or before February 20, 2017

This assistance is available for students who truly could not attend without it. Financial need is the top priority in awarding financial assistance. Ability will be the second consideration. Even if you are not awarded a scholarship, you will be allowed to register without penalty.

Please note: Any student or teacher awarded a scholarship will be required to help with institute week including sitting at the scholarship table, helping with t-shirts, any other need that we have. If you are not willing to help, please do not apply. No full scholarships are awarded. You will be expected to supply the balance of tuition.
