The total cost for the summer 2017 program is $4,000. While the actual cost of providing this program is substantially higher, grant funding and donations have allowed us to keep the cost for this 12 week intensive program at a reduced rate.

Applicants in need of a scholarship must successfully go through the school application process before receiving the scholarship application.
