After a student is accepted into the training program, a parent(s) can submit their IRS Return to the Financial Aid Committee for consideration of financial aid. The Committee will determine if the family will pay nothing, a partial amount or the full cost of participation. Scholarship assistance is based on the amount of funds raised from foundation grants, federal grants or corporate donations.
