The Loft's Scholarship Pool model allows you to submit a single online application for youth or adult class scholarships. These opportunities are available to individuals and families on public assistance.* 

Once accepted, available scholarship seats are emailed out as they become available. These email alerts will give you access to promo codes (applied during checkout) that provide a 95% reduction in tuition for a class. The  scholarship recipient pays the remaining 5% cost, which will vary  depending on the regular price of the class.

Please note: these seats are offered first-come first-served, about a week to two weeks before the respective class starts. Meaning, you'll have to wait for a class that matches your interests and schedule.

To apply, please provide proof of eligibility that includes:

1) Your name & address

2) Public assistance program name** 

3) A recent date 

Then, use your mobile phone's camera, fax machine, scanner, or good old snail mail to send us your documentation after, or along with your online application below.
