Financial Assistance FAQs

You will need to submit your most recent tax return showing your family’s Adjusted Gross Income. (Please remember to redact your Social Security Number.) If your most recent tax statements don’t show your current income due to recent circumstances, please include a letter of unemployment or whatever documentation will help us best understand your current financial situation.

Scholarships are offered to families on a sliding scale based on financial need. We use the national guidelines for free and reduced lunch to assign levels of assistance. Scholarships are awarded at levels of 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. Once applications are received and reviewed, an NCT Education member will reach out to confirm your scholarship level.

Families need to apply for tickets only once a year. The year resets in August. The NCT Drama School accepts class scholarship applications on a rolling basis and tries to assign in order of receipt. Thus, as soon as applications open, we recommend you apply.
