Access for All Financial Assistance for Yard School of Art
The Access for All Financial Assistance Program is designed to reduce financial barriers to the arts for children and teens (5-19 years old) with disabilities and special needs. The Montclair Art Museum is committed to providing a welcoming, inclusive, educational, and safe environment for all. A sliding scale for reduced tuition is based on household income, number of dependents, and availability of funds. The Access for All Financial Assistance Program was established in summer 2018 through the generous support of community members.
Consult the tuition tiers form to determine the level of assistance you might be eligible for, and complete and submit an application form and nomination form. Both forms are required to be eligible for consideration. Financial Assistance is based on availability of funds and is not guaranteed for all applicants.
