Online Scholarship Application
Each semester PNCA awards partial tuition scholarships to children and young adults, ages 4-18, to attend art classes in our Youth Program. Awards are based on financial need and may cover up to two thirds of the cost of attendance. In addition to possible tuition costs, students and their families are also responsible for the department fee of a course.

Students can apply for a scholarship each Term, up to four times per year. A student cannot receive more than one scholarship per term. Siblings may apply concurrently.

Should your child be awarded a scholarship, we will make every effort, but cannot guarantee, placement in your preferred course.

A letter of Recommendation from a teacher or community member is required as part of the application. Recommendations should be a short paragraph describing the applicant's interest in art. Students under the age of 18 who qualify for the Free/Reduced Price Lunch Program at their respective schools are eligible for a tuition scholarship toward a PNCA youth program course. To apply, simply include a letter from the student’s school documenting the participation in the Free/Reduced Price Lunch Program along with the scholarship form. If the child is home-schooled or in a school that does not participate in the Free/Reduced Price Lunch Program, please include proof of income in the form of last year’s income tax form.

Letters of Recommendation, documentation of participation in a the Free/Reduced Lunch Program and/or Income Tax forms should be sent to:
