CMA Scholarships

In support of our mission to bring arts to all children regardless of means or ability, CMA awards a limited number of full and partial scholarships to families with financial need. To be eligible for a CMA scholarship, applicants must complete a Scholarship Form before the program deadline (listed below). Due to the success of our scholarship program, financial documents may be requested to ensure CMA scholarships are going to families with true financial need.

CMA asks that families apply for our Partial Scholarship and contribute a partial tuition if they can. Applicants may write how much they can contribute in the Pay As You Wish option on the form. All proceeds go towards future scholarships and community programs at the Children’s Museum of the Arts, so we thank you in advance for your support!

Upcoming Deadlines

  • Winter WEE Arts: December 15, 2018
  • Spring After School: January 5, 2019
  • Spring Art Colony: rolling basis
  • Summer Art Colony: May 31, 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

After submitting my Scholarship Form, do I also have to register my child for a class through the website?
No. If you apply through our scholarship program, there is no need to register for a class on our website. Registering separately on our website does not secure your child’s spot in the class; their spot is only secure after the full tuition is received. Scholarship candidates should wait for a scholarship offer before registering with our staff.

When will I hear back? What if the class my child is interested in fills up?
Scholarship placements are announced at least 3 weeks prior to the start of each program (ex. if your camp runs from June 18-22, we will notify you by May 28th). We ask all applicants to choose two classes they are interested in, so if their first choice fills up, they can attend their second choice class.

Do I need to email or call you to check on my scholarship application?
Due to high volumes of applicants, please refrain from additional emails or phone calls regarding your application. We hope to notify all applicants of the outcome at least 3 weeks prior to the start of each program.
