Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance

MoCo Arts believes that all students should have the opportunity to experience the arts.
To that end, we offer tuition assistance for classes, and camps. The funds are limited and allocated for different times of the year.

Tuition Assistance deadline for Spring Programs: December 15
Apply today for tuition assistance towards spring classes or our School Vacation Camps.
We make every effort to award Tuition Assistance past the application deadline.

Please note: if you received assistance for the Fall Semester you must reapply for the Spring Semester.

If you are a resident of Keene Housing, additional assistance is available. Please call the Keene Housing Kids Collaborative at 603-352-0109. Click here to learn more about KHKC.

About Tuition Assistance
Assistance will be based on the financial need of the applicant and will not exceed 70% of tuition. Assistance will be given based on a percentage of the total cost of the classes the applicant is signing up for. Applicant (or parent/guardian) agrees to pay balance of the charges. The non-refundable registration fee of $25 is required at the time of application. This will be applied to the tuition charge.

For students who receive tuition assistance, an attendance policy similar to that of the performance attendance policy will be expected by the student.  The student may only miss 4 classes per semester for each class they received tuition assistance for.  For camps, the student is expected to be present for all days you have signed up for.  If a student does not meet this attendance requirement, they will not be considered for tuition assistance the next semester, or for one year if a camp is missed.

Applications will be accepted up to the deadline; we make every effort to make notification of awards within one week. Applications received after the deadline will be assessed by the Review Board with no guarantee of award, subject to the availability of funds.
