Scholarship Giving


At Juilliard, admission has always been based on talent and dedication alone. We believe that no student should be denied a Juilliard education for want of funds. With 90 percent of our students typically eligible for financial assistance, every newly created scholarship represents important progress towards Juilliard’s goal of securing the resources required to meet their needs. All contributions to The Juilliard School for scholarships are fully tax deductible.


Offering support to any student with need, this important fund makes a Juilliard education possible for many deserving young artists. Gifts in any amount are gratefully welcomed. You can make a donation to the Juilliard Scholarship Fund online.


Donors may establish scholarships in their name or in honor or memory of someone special. Named scholarships at Juilliard are funded on an annual basis or can be permanently endowed to create a lasting legacy that will support talented young artists for generations to come. For more information about Juilliard’s scholarship program, please contact Tori Brand at (212) 799-5000, ext. 692, or email vbrand@juilliard.edu.

All scholarship recipients are chosen by a Juilliard committee of senior administrators and faculty primarily on the basis of financial need, as well as artistic merit. Donors may not select recipients. If you are considering establishing a scholarship through a bequest or another type of deferred gift please visit the Planned Giving section.
