Seeing Stars! Tuition Assistance Program

The Flint School of Performing Arts is committed to supporting all students who have a spark for music or dance, regardless of their income, age, or ability. The Seeing Stars! Tuition Assistance Program provides support for students who may not otherwise have the chance to study at the FSPA, due to financial need. Awards range from 20 - 85% of tuition cost, with the student paying the remainder. Awards are determined by application. Please see details and Target Dates below.
