Special Needs Arts Programs, Inc. Scholarship Guidelines
SNAP Philosophy on Scholarships

SNAP is committed to having a diverse participant group and supporting a certain number of individuals with an established financial hardship. SNAP is not able to offer scholarships greater that 50% of the cost to attend. We will respond to individual requests for information on scholarships. The scholarship allocation will include the Fall and Spring session, meaning that someone will not need to reapply with the Spring session. Scholarship applications need to be submitted annually with Fall session registration and will not be carried over to the next year. All requests for scholarships will be reviewed and awarded by the SNAP Program Committee according to financial need.

Criteria for Scholarships

It is important to determine need by evaluating the income available to the individual applying for the scholarship. Criteria for scholarships will include income and access to supplementary resources, including:
• having a “funded” special needs trust
• access to DDS Family Support Flexible Funding Allocations and/or Stipends
• access to DDS Recreational & Social Community Integration Activity funds
• access to parental and family financial support
Budgeted Amount for Scholarships

The funds dedicated for scholarships will be reviewed as part of the annual budget process every year. SNAP has limited funds available for scholarships and will allocate those funds based on first come, first serve and financial need basis.

Procedure for Applying for Scholarships

Applications will be numbered and dated as received. Applications are reviewed on a first come, first serve and financial need basis.
