The Washington University PAD is pleased to announce that financial aid in the form of Performing Arts Department scholarships for this program are available. Students from Washington University who wish to apply for scholarships should fill out the online scholarship application (link below) at the same time as the regular application. Scholarship applications will be considered on a first come basis to the earliest applicants and will be awarded based on an evaluation of each student's financial need.

We encourage students from other universities and colleges to pursue scholarship options at their home institutions. Inform yourself as soon as possible of any upcoming deadlines, since summer study scholarships are often quite competitive.  Students in past years have had success in soliciting aid from their college's office of the Dean of Students.  Some colleges also offer financial support for student internships (for example, at Connecticut College there is the CELS program).  We can coordinate with you to establish an internship with the French non-profit MADE in France (please contact Dr. Elizabeth Claire via email for information..
