Tuition Assistance Application

This form is due by July 15 each year.

Welcome to another wonderful orchestral season! To be considered for tuition assistance, fill out the Tuition Assistance Application and the Work Study Program Application. You must fill out both forms. 

Please note that we do ask for financial information on these forms to be sure to review them closely before submitting.  For your safety and security, please black out ALL social security numbers and private information.  We request this information to verify your financial eligibility for the scholarship program. 

Some DYAO donors donate specifically to our tuition assistance fund. These donors want to make sure that all qualified young musicians can participate in Colorado's premier youth orchestras. If you are determined eligible for tuition assistance, you will be asked to write specific thank you notes to donors. You will also be required to complete 10 or more hours of work-study.  Work-study opportunities can be found on the work-study form.

We recommend you complete your work-study hours in the first few months of the season. If, for any reason, you leave DYAO before the end of the season, you will be expected to pay the balance on your account equal to incomplete hours.

If you have any questions, please contact Executive Director Kelly Waltrip at 303.433.2420 or

Thank you!
