Since 1928 Curtis has maintained an all-scholarship policy. The Curtis Institute of Music provides merit-based full-tuition scholarships to all undergraduate and graduate, students, regardless of their financial situation.
For the 2012-13 school year, the annual value of this scholarship was $36,500 for undergraduate students and $49,500 for graduate students. These scholarships are renewed each year of a student’s enrollment. No financial aid application is required for the full-tuition scholarship.

Students who demonstrates financial need will be awarded adequate assistance to attend the Curtis Institute of Music. No student will have to leave Curtis solely because of financial need. Financial assistance for living expenses is based solely on financial need.
Before turning to Curtis for supplemental assistance, students are expected to utilize funds from non-Curtis sources, including grants, loans, and scholarships available through private, public, and other sources.
