Scholarship Awards

If a scholarship is awarded, it may cover anywhere between 75%-100% of the cost of a class.

*Once a student has accepted a scholarship, it is non-transferrable.

When a student withdraws from a class, the scholarship is cancelled and may not be applied to a different term. Cancellations may affect eligibility for future scholarships.


If you are awarded a scholarship that is less than 100% of the tuition cost, payment of your portion of tuition is due by the date listed on your award letter. An A2AC staff member will reach out to you to facilitate this process.

Reflections Letter

Scholarship funding is made possible by our generous donors. Upon accepting a scholarship, you agree to submit a letter reflecting on your experience and what you valued or gained from it. This letter is due within two weeks after the end of your class and will be shared with current and prospective donors.
