Need-Based Financial Assistance

In 1986, the Advisory Board of The Athens Community Music School established a Need Based Scholarship Fund (now known as “Financial Assistance”) through the Ohio University Foundation, the University’s institutionally-related, nonprofit, tax exempt, 501 (c) (3) organization. Since then, members of the Advisory Board work annually to raise money that supports music lessons at the Athens Community Music School for financially disadvantaged families in Southeast Ohio.

All information is strictly confidential. Financial assistance is awarded based on money available, number of applicants, and applicant need. We endeavor to award as much as possible within these criteria. All students are eligible to apply. The financial assistance awarded is deducted from the total tuition charges. In recent years, over $6000 was awarded.

The Need-Based Financial Assistance Application requires that families provide documented proof of annual family income (e.g., inclusion of the previous year's 1040 Tax Form or other proof if you do not file taxes). If you wish to be considered for financial assistance, please submit a “Lesson Registration Form" with a 50% payment for the lessons, group classes, or ensemble in which you would like to enroll and a completed “Financial Assistance Application.” All applications will be reviewed and you will then be informed by the director of ACMS of any additional cost you may owe.
