How Financial Aid Works

Financial Aid is award­ed with­out dis­crim­i­na­tion on the basis of race, creed, col­or, eth­nic ori­gin, reli­gion, sex, dis­abil­i­ty or sex­u­al ori­en­ta­tion.

The total amount of Financial Aid as well as the dis­tri­b­u­tion of finan­cial aid will be based upon deter­mi­na­tion of finan­cial need and of poten­tial tal­ent deter­mined by appli­ca­tion, inter­view and/​or audi­tion as iden­ti­fied by the Director of the Texas Arts Project con­sis­tent with the pro­ject­ed avail­abil­i­ty of funds.

The cost of tuition does not include trans­porta­tion to and from the camp and per­son­al expens­es, there­fore these fees would not be cov­ered through finan­cial assis­tance. Texas Arts Project can only reward up to 50% tuition to qual­i­fied appli­cants.

All Financial Aid is award­ed on an annu­al basis. Most will be award­ed 1 month pri­or to the com­mence­ment date for each Texas Arts Project sum­mer ses­sion.

Financial Aid may be award­ed sub­ject to the fol­low­ing con­di­tions:

  1. Financial Aid is sub­ject to the avail­abil­i­ty of funds and an open posi­tion in the camp ses­sion; and Financial Aid award­ed for any giv­en ses­sion is valid for that ses­sion only.
  2. ALL FINANCIAL AID is ter­mi­nal and there­fore ALL FINANCIAL AID RECIPIENTS must reap­ply each year.
  3. All appli­ca­tions for finan­cial assis­tance will be con­sid­ered on a first appli­ca­tion sub­mit­ted basis.
  4. ALL FINANCIAL AID may be sub­ject to can­cel­la­tion at any time at the direc­tion of the Texas Arts Project Director based on but not nec­es­sar­i­ly lim­it­ed to poor per­for­mance, poor class/​rehearsal atten­dance, dis­rup­tive behav­ioral prob­lems, and lack of demon­strat­ed moti­va­tion.
  5. All Financial Aid recip­i­ents must cer­ti­fy that the finan­cial infor­ma­tion sub­mit­ted in the appli­ca­tion is true and cor­rect to their best belief; and fur­ther­more, that if any sub­stan­tial finan­cial change occurs that might impact their eli­gi­bil­i­ty for their assis­tance, that they will prompt­ly noti­fy the Texas Arts Project Director of such changes.
