Saturday School : Scholarships
Students must apply for scholarships at the time of registration. Scholarship applicants cannot register online. Students who are already registered for a Pre-College Saturday School course will be ineligible for a scholarship for that term and retroactive refunds will not be processed.
A limited number of $100 merit-based scholarships are available to students who apply. The scholarship application is available for download below. To apply, students must complete the application form and return it along with the completed registration form and payment in the amount of $250 plus $65 fees by Friday, September 21, for the fall semester and Friday, January 25, for the spring. If a student is not awarded a scholarship, he or she will be billed for the remaining $100.
Full-tuition scholarships are generously funded by the Surdna Foundation, the Richard and Jean Coyne Family Foundation, the Brook J. Lenfest Foundation, the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation, and the Mill Spring Foundation.
Scholarships are awarded based on teacher recommendation, portfolio, personal essay and financial need.
Due to the generosity of these foundations, there are a limited number of full scholarships available to students who apply. These scholarships are based upon financial need and student merit. Applicants must submit :
- Letter of recommendation from an art teacher
- Student work – see complete requirements on the scholarship form
- Personal essay
- Financial statements
To receive an application for full scholarship, you can download the form below or contact our office at 215.717.6430 or email@example.com Students who receive full scholarships are still responsible for the fees in the amount of $65.
Full Scholarship Re-Application
Students who have received full-tuition scholarship funding in Pre-College Programs in the past must re-apply each semester by following the re-application procedures in this form. All prior attendance and performance in Pre-College Programs, including attendance, grades and behavior will be considered with re-application. Re-applicants must provide updated and recent high school transcripts to show continued aptitude and success in both high school and Pre-College Programs. Students who were awarded funding in the past are not guaranteed funding in subsequent semesters and programs. Applications will be evaluated on a first come, first served basis.
Full scholarships are awarded to Philadelphia-area high school students with talent and extraordinary financial need.
