Every session YADA offers tuition awards 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.

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 may be offered for specific casts or for a session (Winter, Fall, Spring, Summer). Financial awards can only be used for one cast per session. 

YADA will do everything possible to accommodate your class preference, but you may be asked to choose another class/camp at YADA’s discretion. Failure to follow YADA's guidelines, procedures, and terms of our Tuition Awards may result in the rescinding of any award or eligibility for an award.
