Since 1928 Curtis has maintained an all-scholarship policy. The
Curtis Institute of Music provides merit-based full-tuition scholarships to all
undergraduate and graduate, students, regardless of their financial situation.

For the 2012-13 school year, the annual value of this
scholarship was $36,500 for undergraduate students and $49,500 for graduate
students. These scholarships are renewed each year of a student’s enrollment.
No financial aid application is required for the full-tuition scholarship.

In 2012-13, there were 20 Federal Pell Grant recipients.
There were 125 students who received some type of financial assistance,
including grants, loans and student employment opportunities.

Students who demonstrate financial need will be awarded adequate
assistance to attend the Curtis Institute of Music. No student will have to
leave Curtis solely because of financial need. Financial assistance for living
expenses is based solely on financial need.

Before turning to Curtis for supplemental assistance, students
are expected to utilize funds from non-Curtis sources, including grants, loans,
and scholarships available through private, public, and other sources.
