Scholarship (Tuition Remission) Fund

Most of our children are bright individuals who are eager to do well.  As such, special services that are usually reserved for children who are more globally impaired are often not available, and our children are known to "fall between the cracks."  Also, they often require many types of treatment in addition to pragmatic language therapy (eg., occupational therapy, counseling, speech/language, psychopharmacology, etc.) which gets very expensive. 

The purpose of our tuition remission fund is to enable more children to participate in our program by providing affordable tuition rates. Since The Drama-Play Connection, Inc. is a tax exempt corporation under Section 501©)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code, contributions to The Drama-Play Connection Tuition Remission Program are tax-deductible.  Donating partial or full tuition can make a big difference for one child. 

Application guideline/requirements:

1) Eligibility for camp tuition remission is based on financial need.

2) All children and adolescents attending The Drama-Play Connection in financial need will be considered equally.

3) Ask for a reasonable amount. Full remission is usually not granted.

4) Tuition remission is made after acceptance to the program.

5. The donor shall not exercise any influence in the selection of a qualifying student. A donor cannot donate funds in the name of any particular student.
