A limited number of financial aid awards are available for students demonstrating financial need. We are grateful for the generosity of our donors and grantors for providing the funding which makes these awards possible and happy to assist those wishing to enrich their lives with art at the Wayne Center for the Arts! Some of our major financial aid contributors include: The Noble Foundation, the Ohio Arts Council, the Jean Baird Scholarship for the Arts, and the Wayne County Community Foundation.
Financial Aid applications, with proof of income, must be completed annually and will be awarded to the household, and all listed household members, on a fiscal year basis (July-June). Once approved, the percentage of financial aid awarded may be used for all household members wishing to enroll in classes throughout the year provided financial aid funds remain. Financial aid awards are based on family income, household size and statement of need.
Please download the WCA Financial Aid Application and bring it with your proof of income to Wayne Center for the Arts.
Ohio ACE Program
We also encourage you to look into the The Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) Educational Savings Account program. This program through the state of Ohio provides qualifying families with a $1,000 credit per child.
