Financial Aid

Summer 2019 financial aid application will be available April 15. 

Due to the large number of financial aid applications this year and the many awards we have been able to grant, the application process is now closed for the 2018-2019 Academic Year.

What is the process for financial aid?

Charitable contributions allow us to offer limited financial aid to those who demonstrate a need. The amount of aid awarded is based on household income and family size. Financial aid does not pay for lessons/classes in full. Continued aid is dependent upon attendance, teacher/director evaluation and ongoing need. NMS reserves the right to discontinue any financial aid because of frequent absences or tardiness, or because of delinquent lesson payments.

There are 3 (three) steps to completing a financial aid application:

  1. Answering questions on the application;
  2. Submitting the first 2 (two) pages of your most recent tax return;
  3. Application deposit of $50 in one of the following:

All three steps must be complete before we can proceed with determining an award.
