Financial Aid

A major goal of The Conservatory of Central Illinois' mission is to offer financial aid programs to students unable to participate in music instruction programs due to lack of personal or family funds. The Conservatory awards over $10,000 annually in direct financial aid to students. Financial aid programs include both need-based awards and talent awards.

A crucial part of The Conservatory's income budget is not earned through tuition and fee payments. Donations from the central Illinois community at large support special projects, outreach programs, and music instruction for students who cannot otherwise financially afford lessons.

Support for student scholarships comes from fundraising efforts in the community. The support of generous individuals and businesses has allowed The Conservatory to award financial aid each year.
