School of the Arts Foundation Scholarships
The School of the Arts Foundation wants to make higher education an opportunity for each and every student at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts. Paying for higher education is often a family’s greatest challenge. One of the Foundation’s goals is to help students meet this challenge through its scholarship program.
Generous individuals and organizations in the community have made donations to benefit deserving seniors at the Dreyfoos School. In 2012, the School of the Arts Foundation distributed over $88,000 in scholarship dollars.
The majority of Foundation scholarships require students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We recommend that students complete a FAFSA online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/
