CityArts offers student scholarships as part of its mission to ensure that all Wichitans have access to a creative community fostering discovery, understanding, connection and hope between people and cultures. Funding is based on availability, with scholarships awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Only one scholarship may be awarded to an individual student per calendar year.

Scholarships must be requested at least two weeks prior to the class start date. Students will be notified upon approval of the scholarship. Please understand scholarship funding may not be available at the time of inquiry.
