YADA Scholarships

Every session YADA offers scholarships to those families in financial need. It is our belief that every child deserves to discover the magic of theatre, and we make it our mission to provide YADA to those who qualify.

Scholarship applicants will need to provide proof of any and all income, most recent tax returns, explanation of any extenuating circumstances, and a completed financial aid form.

Please note that the maximum award possible for a family is the equivalent of one full tuition per session, if approved.

All qualified scholarship families are required to re-apply for aid for each session they wish to attend. 

Scholarships are not offered for specific casts but for a session (Winter, Fall, Spring, Summer)

YADA will do everything possible to accommodate your class preference, but you may be asked to choose another class at YADA’s discretion.

For any questions, please contact our Tuition Award Committee at
