CSMA offers financial aid to students who meet U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) income guidelines. Financial aid is available for all CSMA classes, private lessons and camps. Aid is offered based on family size and income. Financial aid is approved on a rolling basis as applications are received. Financial aid must be approved before recipients can enroll. As some programs fill up quickly, we recommend applying at least one to two weeks before the start of your lesson, class or camp.

Our Process:

Step 1

Parents/legal guardians/applicants need to provide photocopies of qualifying documentation:

  • Option 2 – Free and Reduced Price Meal Letter (FRPM)
  • Option 3 – Housing/Section 8 voucher
Step 2
