STUDENT ASSISTANCE

SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL AID

Need-Based Financial Aid

Need-based assistance is designed to help participants who may not be able to afford the full cost of participation. To apply for need-based financial assistance, families will be asked to provide documentation of their income and family size, typically with a W2. Decisions about financial assistance are made on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the applicant's specific needs and the resources available to the program.

Merit Scholarship Program

The RSYO Honors program provides a 40% scholarship course of study for RSYO Students who demonstrate exceptional talent and commitment to the program. These scholarships are awarded by audition and demonstrated musical ability, commitment to music, and leadership within the program.

In addition to merit and need-based assistance, YOP provides discounts on tuition to families with multiple children in the program.
