Stanford Jazz Workshop strives to make jazz accessible to our Youth Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund. In 2017, we distributed over $83,000 in financial aid for underserved youth to attend Giant Steps Big Band, Giant Steps Day Camp, Jazz Camp, and Jazz Institute, which enabled 79 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: Giant Steps year-round programs, Giant Steps Day Camp, Jazz Camp, and Jazz Institute students who will be between 11 and 17 at the start of the program of their choice can apply for financial aid toward tuition.
Housing: Financial aid toward housing for Jazz Camp, 2-Week Jazz Camp Package, Jazz Institute, 2-Week Advanced Package, and World Rhythms @ Stanford Jazz Workshop is available for students who will be 14 –17 when their SJW program begins.
