Needs-based scholarships are available to current and future students at the Fine Arts Center of Easley.   Students must be enrolled in either private lessons, classes or the theatre program to qualify for a scholarship.  No cash awards will be given and funds may only be applied to programs at the Fine Arts Center of Easley.  Applicants must complete a financial questionnaire and meet specific guidelines to qualify for a one-time or monthly scholarship.  Scholarships can only be awarded when funds are available.

Program Support

Funds may be utilized to support programs at the Fine Arts Center of Easley by paying for expenses not typically covered by tuition.  Examples include, but are not limited to: theatre production royalties, costumes or sets, music workshops or masterclasses, art shows or masterclasses, and other special events.    Program support funds will not be used to pay salaries, except in the case of honorariums for masterclasses or workshops.

Donors may designate funds for specific use within the two categories listed above.  Undesignated funds will be divided equally between the two areas.
