Scholarship Programs

Financial Aid for School Performances

SteppingStone Theatre is committed to broad access to its programs and will make every effort to accommodate the financial needs of your school as space and funds are available. Financial Aid is intended for groups who would not otherwise be able to attend performances and must be requested prior to booking.

Financial Aid is made available through individual donations and grants from foundations and corporations who support the mission of SteppingStone Theatre. Please fill out the following information for our records so that we can better serve groups like yours in the future.

Student Education Scholarship Program

At SteppingStone, we strive to make our programming accessible to all students.

Anyone is welcome to apply for a scholarship. Our scholarship program is based on a sliding scale model where scholarship amounts are calculated using your annual gross household income and a couple other factors.

Please complete one application per student. Once your application has been received, you will receive a confirmation email from SteppingStone. Please allow up to one week to receive your confirmation email. If you are applying for a class that starts in less than two weeks, there is a chance your application will not be processed in time. All applications will undergo processing and awards will be announced via email 2 weeks before the class Start Date. The award email will detail the amount of your scholarship award and the class for which your award has been granted. A spot will not be reserved in the class for your student until you have confirmed acceptance of your scholarship award. Please do not register your student for programming before receiving notice of your award. This will disqualify you from the scholarship program as funds cannot be retroactively applied to registrations.  We award funds on a first-come, first-serve basis and try to accommodate as many families as possible.
