Financial Assistance

Since 1928 Curtis has maintained an all-scholarship policy. The Curtis Institute of Music provides merit-based, full-tuition scholarships to all undergraduate and graduate students, regardless of their financial situation.

For the 2016-17 school year, the annual value of this scholarship was $41,087 for undergraduate students and $51,924 for graduate students. These scholarships are renewed each year of a student’s enrollment. No financial aid application is required for the full-tuition scholarship.

In 2016-17, there were 12 Federal Pell Grant recipients. There were 132 students who received some type of financial assistance, including grants, loans, and student employment opportunities.

Students who demonstrate financial need will be awarded adequate assistance to attend the Curtis Institute of Music. No student will have to leave Curtis solely because of financial need. Financial assistance for living expenses is based on financial need alone.

Before turning to Curtis for supplemental assistance, students are expected to utilize funds from non-Curtis sources, including grants, loans, and scholarships available through private, public, and other sources.
