Tuition Assistance Form
Dear Parent or Guardian,
In order to ensure that no child is excluded from our programs for financial reasons, YMMC offers a limited amount of need-based tuition assistance scholarships each year. YMMC may not be able to fund all requests, or the entire amount requested apply for tuition assistance.
Please complete this online application and submit supplemental documentation to the YMMC office by September 1st. Please note that tuition is non-refundable after September 1st. All applications are confidential and reviewed by a board and staff committee. You are REQUIRED to include a copy of your most recent income tax return.
Student recipients of financial aid are expected to attend practices and maintain private lessons throughout the year. We will check on Tuition Assistance recipients during the year to ensure that commitments are met and that the student is making good progress.
The financial aid status of the student may be reviewed at any time throughout the year, at the Committee’s discretion, and is subject to the student’s compliance with policies laid out in the Orchestra Member/Parent Handbook and the continuance of private lessons. You will be notified of your award amount once all applications have been reviewed by YMMC Board and Staff.
The orchestra repertoire becomes increasingly challenging throughout the year, and in order to meet these challenges, it is very important that all students receive the guidance and support of a private music instructor throughout their membership in YMMC. In support of this, YMMC may elect to assist with the cost of private lessons through special donation drives and other fundraising activities. Please let the office know if you need this kind of assistance.
Please mail a copy of your most recent Tax Return Statement (MANDATORY) and anything else that you think may help you establish proof of income to:
Youth Music Monterey County
546B Hartnell Street
Monterey, CA 93940
YOUR SCHOLARSHIP FORM WILL NOT BE PROCESSED WITHOUT YOUR TAX STATEMENT. PLEASE SUBMIT IT TO YMMC BY YOUR AUDITION APPOINTMENT IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR TUITION ASSISTANCE.
If you have any questions concerning financial aid options, please contact our office at (831) 375-1992.
