Through the generosity of foundation grants and individual donations, the Arts Council of Princeton provides partial scholarships so that classes are accessible to as many people as possible.

For information regarding scholarships, please email with the subject line “Scholarship Inquiry.” In order to be considered, you should reach out at least one month prior to the class you are interested in. You will be asked to provide information regarding financial need. All information submitted is confidential and awards are based on need.

Application Process

  • Please complete the entire application, including attaching a copy of your most recently filed federal income tax return. If your child receives subsidized school lunch, there is no need to attach tax form – instead, please include the form that shows they receive subsidized lunch. If you do not file a federal income tax form, please submit copies of other verification of annual income and/or support.
  • Materials may also be submitted in person or by mail. The Arts Council’s address is 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ, 08542, c/o Education Department.
  • Submissions from families with an outstanding tuition balance will not be considered until the balance is paid in full.
  • Please note that applicants are always required to pay a portion of the class fee. 

Recipient Obligations​

  • Scholarship recipients must pay a portion of tuition for any given class. Each application is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. However, on average, the recommended minimum amount to be paid by recipient will be 25% of tuition. This payment must be made in full a least one week prior to the start of the specific program.
  • Scholarship recipients must consistently attend class as scheduled. Poor attendance may result in being excused from program and/or denial of subsequent scholarship requests.
