Financial Aid Guidelines

The Pittsburgh CLO Academy’s goal is to provide our students with the tools necessary to succeed here and in future artistic and educational endeavors. We have very high standards for all of our students. The guidelines below outline our expectations for Financial Aid students.

Qualifications

To qualify for financial aid, students must complete a financial aid form and meet certain financial criteria. Full and partial financial aid awards are available for group classes only and cannot be applied to private lessons. All students must re-apply for financial aid in the fall of each year prior to the start of class. No audition is necessary to receive financial aid. This financial aid is available on a first-come first-serve basis. Applications are offered in the summer and must be recieved by the deadline for consideration. Financial aid funds are limited. Past awards do not guarantee future financial aid.

Multiple Class discounts to not apply to students who receive financial aid or a scholarship.

Attendance

Regular attendance is mandatory to maintain financial aid. Three excused absences will be permitted per semester. Please have school musicals and other CLO events cleared ahead of time with the Scholarship Coordinator. Exceptions will be made for medical and family emergencies. Excessive absenteeism will result in the loss of the financial aid.

Conduct

Students are expected to behave in a responsible and respectful manner at all times. Poor conduct will result in the loss of financial aid.

Please download and read the financial aid information packet for all the requiments and restrictions.

CLO Guild / Constance T. Rockwell Scholarship

Recognizing the achievements of local high school seniors pursuing a further education in the performing arts.

These scholarships were named for the late Connie Rockwell, who founded the Pittsburgh CLO Guild in 1953 and played a valuable leadership role in the local theater arts community for more than 50 years. They are awarded annually to deserving local high school seniors, in keeping with Mrs. Rockwell’s desire to recognize, encourage and support talented high school students who want to pursue an education and a career in the performing arts.

High school seniors who want to pursue a college education in the theater arts are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are issued in a minimum amount of $4,000 and are awarded based on talent, financial need, scholastic merit and school and community involvement. Prior to submitting a scholarship application, the student must have applied to an accredited college, university or conservatory that offers a four-year program with a requisite audition. After reviewing the applications, the Scholarship Committee interviews and auditions each semi-finalist.
