The end date given for residential programs is the Saturday following the end of classes. In most cases, students may leave on Friday after the final performance. Included in the fee is an allowance of $15 per week on each student’s flexible spending account to cover laundry and minor purchases on campus.


Please be aware that our scholarship resources are very limited. Your first resource for scholarships should be organizations in your community such as Rotary, booster clubs, churches, foundations and businesses. Additionally, the Anthony Quinn Foundation has a competitive scholarship program for high school students in the arts. 

A limited number of partial scholarships and fee waivers will be offered for UNCSA summer music workshops based on the following criteria: 

  • Proficiency in your instrument as evidenced in your audition 
  • Recommendation from your music teacher attesting to your accomplishments in repertory, music theory and potential for musical growth 
  • Instrumentation needs within your chosen workshop
