Financial Aid

Financial Aid: Tuition Assistance, Merit and Need-based Scholarships


Evergreen City Ballet offers financial aid through our tuition assistance, merit and need-based scholarships on a limited basis. Depending on the award, scholarships can be applied to tuition and/or dance-related expenses such as purchasing leotards, tights, or pointe shoes.


Scholarship students agree not to study at any other school and not to attend auditions or to accept any amateur or professional performing engagements without the official approval of the Artistic Director. ECB requires scholarship students to have excellent attendance, good behavior, and satisfactory grades.


Students receiving tuition assistance will be required to do some volunteer work around the studio. Parents may also volunteer and help in lieu of the student. This will be discussed with the School Principal after a decision on your application has been made.


Step 1 - Apply


We process our tuition assistance and scholarship applications through Confidential Financial Services (CFS), There is a $35 application fee. You will first need to fill out an online application on their website to begin the process of your application.


Please contact our Office Manager at to request for our school code before applying. Privacy and discretion are a priority for ECB concerning individuals receiving tuition assistance.


Step 2 - Review


Please give us 2-4 weeks to review your application. Our financial aid committee will review your CFS report and determine whether you qualify to receive tuition assistance or a scholarship.


Step 3 - Award


You will be notified via e-mail of your award. To accept, you will need to set up a meeting with our School Principal to sign a scholarship contract and discuss your dance education at Evergreen City Ballet.

Olivia Gray Scholarship Fund

(Need-based scholarship)


Olivia Gray trained at Pacific Northwest Ballet for twelve years before she found her home at Evergreen City Ballet. ECB was a second family for her and a place to share her beautiful gifts. Olivia was the epitome of what a dancer should be, her spirit and passion in the studio and on stage captivated everyone who watched her. To best honor Olivia and her legacy, her family would love to help other aspiring dancers pursue their dream.

The Olivia Gray Scholarship Fund is a need-based scholarship that will assist dancers to focus on enjoying what they love to do without the burden of worrying about the cost of their training. Please email our Artistic Director at to donate to Olivia's scholarship fund.
