Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

San Diego Junior Theatre Tuition Assistance


San Diego Junior Theatre is pleased to offer full or partial funding to families who would otherwise be unable to participate in our educational programs. Tuition Assistance can be granted to a family for up to two consecutive sessions (except summer camp). Separate applications must be submitted for each session.

Application deadlines apply, and should be confirmed before submitting an application by calling the Administration Office at (619) 239-1311. Because Junior Theatre receives a high demand for assistance each session, it is each applicant’s responsibility to submit complete application forms and all requested documents before each deadline.

Applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are informed of their eligibility one week prior to the first class or camp.
