CMT San Jose grants need-based scholarships to those families who are unable to afford the tuition for its programs. The intent of the Scholarship Program is to give performance opportunities to youth who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Scholarships may be limited, but CMT will award as many as it is able.
Two types of scholarships are available:
- Work Scholarship
- Non-Work Scholarship
If you are considering to participate in any of our upcoming productions, we strongly encourage you to complete your scholarship application in advance. If you are planning to do a work scholarship, please note that you may begin working off your hours at any time. Don’t wait - there are many areas to choose from. So apply today!
