Financial Aid : The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre

Financial Aid

Finances should never prevent a student from pursuing their passion! That is why we are pleased to offer partial scholarships to those students in need.

  • Please apply two weeks prior to the first day of class or camp. This will allow ample time for your application to be processed.
  • Your situation probably doesn't fit in a neat little box or chart so we ask for your statement of need to be provided in narrative form.
  • Upon receipt of your application, we will reserve a place in the desired class or camp while your application is reviewed by our committee.
  • We ask that you complete one application per student.
  • Applicants will be notified of funding awards at least one week prior to the first day of the class/camp session.
  • Students who never received aid before are considered before those who have been awarded in the past.
  • Financial Aid is not guaranteed by this application. The Financial Aid Committee will review all applications and you will be notified of their decision at least one week prior to the first class/camp day.

Civic Expectations

As a potential financial aid recipient, we ask you meet the following expectations. This will ensure that you will be set up for success in class and that the Civic makes the best use out of its limited financial resources. In the case that the student is a minor, the parent/guardian must agree to the expectations as well.

  1. If you are unable to attend a session, call the Director of Education and Outreach at (269) 548-3035 prior to class starting to let us know of the absence.
  2. Practice and prepare for each session according to the requirements of class.
  3. Meet established deadlines for tuition bills not covered by scholarship.

Failure to meet the above expectations may result in the loss of aid and/or suspension of participation.

By submitting this form, you certify that you have provided current, accurate, and truthful information. You understand that if financial aid is awarded, you will be responsible for paying any tuition balance and applicable fees by the indicated deadlines.
