Financial aid in the form of scholarships is available to both domestic and international students accepted into the Advanced Performance Studies program. All applicants to the APS program are considered for scholarships and assistantships. Additionally, in order to help defray the cost of living expenses, a limited number of conservatory internships are available to APS students. Duties of the conservatory internship include assisting in the Conservatory office, for up to 15 hours per week for the 15 weeks of each semester. All financial aid awards and conservatory internships are renewable, contingent on a student’s good academic standing.
