Tuition Assistance

YMTC provides tuition assistance for our productions and workshops to students who demonstrate a strong financial need. Eligible students will receive between 30 and 100% of tuition costs, based on availability of funds.  Payment plans may also be arranged.

A Tuition Assistance application is included as a part of the registration form for every class, workshop or apprenticeship position.

If a student is auditioning for a show, the application for Tuition Assistance happens after someone is cast and they are registering for the program. Online registration forms can be found on the web page for each upcoming project, using the navigation bar at the top of our website.

Families applying for tuition assistance are asked to submit a $50 minimum deposit at the time of registration. This amount secures the student’s place in the program while their tuition assistance application is under consideration.

The Crane Scholarship

The mission of the Crane Scholarship is to ensure the growth of economic and racial diversity in YMTC’s student body.  The scholarship is specifically for students who come from underserved or underrepresented communities, students who demonstrate financial need, and students who, through audition and application, show promising talent in the field, and outstanding discipline and commitment to the craft of theater. We will give special consideration to applicants who are new to YMTC’s programs.

To be considered for the Crane Scholarship, applicants need to fill out a separate application form at the time of registration.
