Please fill out the Financial Aid Application included in this application only if you truly require aid.
Girls Rock Boston will NOT be providing breakfast or lunches during the week. We will provide snacks throughout the day. If your child needs breakfast lunch provided, please contact Nora at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the session.

Girls Rock Campaign Boston is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to empower girls to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through music education and performance. While we are continuing to grow our programming and community each year, we are at an organizational capacity in holding two summer sessions and may be unable to accommodate the number of applications that we receive. If our spaces are full, you will be placed on a waiting list. While we cannot guarantee that spaces will become available, we will alert you to any developments in your girl’s application status.
Please know that we are making an effort to accommodate all girls who apply but we still cannot guarantee acceptance. There are limited spaces available for each age and instrument group and we cannot exceed our capacity.
Please note: Applicants are in no way accepted or wait-listed based on personal content in the applications. Our process is solely based on the date the application was received and spaces available per age group.
