Aber Suzuki Center Need-Based Scholarship for the 2020 Spring Semester - December 15 Deadline
The American Suzuki Foundation believes that families should have access to Suzuki music education regardless of their current financial circumstances.
American Suzuki Foundation Need-Based Scholarships are awarded each year to help families offset the cost of 20 - 30 minute lessons. These scholarships are not intended to assist in extending lesson time or adding the study of an additional instrument.
Needs Based Scholarship Criteria:
1. A family must intend to enroll at least one child in Suzuki instruction during the semester for which aid is being sought.
2. A family must submit a complete application prior to the deadline to be eligible for a need-based scholarship. This includes turning in a copy of the first page of your 2018 Federal Income Tax Return to the Suzuki office.
3. Family income must be equal to or less than 80% of the Portage County median Income. Under most circumstances, the minimum financial criterion for eligibility for an ASC need-based scholarship is total family income at no more than 80% of the Portage County Median Income Guidelines.
80% Limits for Portage County Median Income
Family Size Income Maximum
2 persons $40,650
3 persons $45,750
4 persons $50,800
5 persons $54,900
6 persons $58,950
7 persons $63,000
8 persons $67,100
For families larger than 8 persons, each additional person in the household adds approximately $4,100 to this maximum.
4. Families who do not fall at or below the 80% CMI threshold may be eligible for Need-Based Scholarships if they can document extenuating circumstances affecting either income or expenses. Examples of extenuating circumstances might include a layoff or job loss, unexpected medical expenses, or changes to personal circumstances such as a divorce.
