Financial Aid

Full or partial tuition assistance is available for families in need.  

Students who receive need based financial aid will receive 2 tickets to each concert.  

Members who are eligible for financial aid are required to participate in RYS for the entire season.  

Failure to do so may result in having to pay back the money according to the following schedule:

    • Drop out on or before 10/16/17 – pay ¼ of tuition

    • Drop out on or before 12/4/17 – pay 1/2 of tuition

    • Drop out on or before 3/5/18 – pay 3/4 of tuition

    • Drop out on or before 4/30/18 – pay all of tuition 


RYS annually offers two-$500 Scholarships:1 to graduating seniors 1 to a qualified member for a year's worth of tuition.

Recipients are chosen based on musicianship, attendance, dedication to the RYS and required essay.  

Details will be available in April, and the essay will be due in May; the winners are be announced at the Symphony and Tea Concert.
