Member Scholarship

Limited financial assistance for participation fees, lessons, or instrument rental for current YOCVA members is available and is based on need as determined by the Scholarship Committee. Those wishing to apply for assistance should download Application for Member Scholarship and mail the completed form to:


Youth Orchestras of Central Virginia
PO Box 4845

Scholarships are awarded based on need, and applications are accepted between June 15th and August 15th, 2018 (an extension of this deadline can be provided for fall auditionees and members who join mid-season). There is a limited amount of scholarship funds, and money is distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Funds may not be available for members who wait until the beginning or middle of the season to apply for financial aid. 


Family Tuition Discount

A 25% discount off of the full participation fee for each child enrolled in an orchestra or ensemble may be available to families that otherwise do not qualify for Member Scholarship. Please note that this fee discount is discretionary.
