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.

Merit Scholarships
A limited number of $100 merit scholarships are based on teacher recommendation. To apply, complete the scholarship form and return it with the completed registration form and payment of $210 plus $65 fees. If not awarded a scholarship, the student will have the option to withdraw or to be billed the remaining $100. The Saturday School 2014-15 Registration + Scholarship Application Form is available for download below.

Scholarships are generously funded by the Louis N. Cassett Foundation, the Richard and Jean Coyne Family Foundation, the the Brook J. Lenfest Foundation, the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation, the Mill Spring Foundation and the University of the Arts.
