NEED-BASED AID

A small committee determined eligibility for need-based aid through a review of the income documentation provided by the applicant. Aid amounts vary depending on the family’s income level and circumstances.  Available funding is limited and need-based financial aid will cover only a portion of the tuition cost.

 

Applicants are encouraged to research grants and loan programs offered by their local governments, foundations, and businesses as well as artistic and educational organizations to help supplement the assistance offered by SVI.
