Financial Assistance

The National Circus School Foundation Bursary Program

Vital Financial Aid for Aspiring Circus Artists

RLO_2968Skills, talent, and determination are the only criteria for entrance into the National Circus School. It is the principle of the School and the Foundation that no qualified student who wishes to pursue their studies at the School will be unable to attend or be required to withdraw from a program at the National Circus School for financial reasons.

The NSCF Bursary is a non-repayable grant that is awarded on the basis of financial need and provides vital financial support to students who cannot handle the full cost of tuition and related expenses. 

Established in 2006, the Bursary program is made possible through an endowment created through donations from individuals, foundations and corporations.  This capital is invested in perpetuity and generates yearly revenue which provides a long-term source of income to disburse bursaries each year. 

If you don’t think you have the financial resources to attend the National Circus School, the NSC Foundation Bursary may be a vital source of financial support for you.
