ECMS Financial Aid Application
Need-based and Merit Scholarships
Financial assistance for regular academic year study is available to ECMS students for lessons, classes and ensembles. Preference is given to those students enrolled in a diploma program.
Assistance is awarded on the combined basis of financial need (determined by review of page 1 of federal income tax return) and merit (demonstrated musical achievement or potential).
Applications are accepted on a continuing basis throughout the year, but awards are determined only two times each year based on the following deadlines: August 1 (consideration for the coming school year) and December 1 (consideration for the spring semester). Requests will be considered after December 1, if funds remain.
A full application consists of
- Financial Assistance & Scholarship application
- An ECMS teacher recommendation
- For financial need consideration: a copy of the first page of federal tax form
