National Circus School Foundation scholarship program

The Foundation’s scholarships are intended to meet the basic needs of the students who applies for them. The individual must demonstrate that the financial resources available to him/her are limited or insufficient to pursue his/her studies.


Since 2006, nearly 75 percent of individuals who have applied for a Foundation scholarship have been awarded one. The program is accessible to all individuals registered full-time at the NCS, regardless of their citizenship. Nearly 25 percent of NCS students receive a Foundation scholarship each year.


Terms and conditions

To be eligible for a Foundation scholarship, the applicant must have been previously admitted to the NCS and be registered for classes. The application form must be completed by May 24 2024 and include all required documents.


Obtaining government financial aid does not preclude eligibility for the Foundation’s scholarship program. All scholarship applications for students under the age of 18 must be approved by a parent.
