Students 18 and younger who want to pursue their study of the arts, but who cannot afford the cost, are invited to apply for financial help through the program. Students may apply for scholarships for private music lessons, classes and ensembles as well as for art and theater classes.
The fall semester begins in September. The deadline for scholarship applications is Monday, Aug. 30.
Sponsored by NIU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, the Community School is home to about 80 teachers who offer lessons on most musical instruments as well as in art and theater. More than 500 people from nearly 50 towns and cities travel to DeKalb each semester for lessons and classes.
