Stanford Jazz Workshop strives to make jazz accessible to our Youth Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund. In 2019, we distributed over $108,000 in financial aid for underserved youth to attend Giant Steps Big Band, Giant Steps Day Camp, Jazz Camp, and Jazz Institute, which enabled many deserving and talented young jazz musicians to immerse themselves in the study of jazz with some of the leading artists in the world.
We make every effort to assist all applicants who need financial assistance, but we do ask that you read the following policies, restrictions, and guidelines carefully before applying for financial aid.
Tuition: Financial aid can be applied to tuition for Giant Steps and Miles Ahead year-round programs, Giant Steps Day Camp, Jazz Camp, Jazz Institute, Jazz Camp Online, or Jazz Institute online. If we are able to offer in-person programs in 2021, financial aid can be applied to those programs as well. Young musicians who will be between the ages of 11 and 17 at the start of the program of their choice can apply for financial aid.
