Hi there! We're happy you found us.

It’s central to our mission to increase access to circus arts and we would love to help you get involved. 

If you’re interested in joining a class at the Circus Project but finances are a barrier for you, please fill out an application below.

Please note: We are dedicated to supporting students interested in ongoing training and will prioritize applicants who have attended previous terms, are low-income, of color, and/or LGBTQIA+. We aim to prioritize applicants with multiple marginalized identities.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Submit an online application by the deadline (generally 5-8 weeks before the new term starts). 

  2. The Award Committee will review all applications

  3. You will be notified by email regarding the decision at least two weeks prior to the start of the term.

  4. Enjoy your circus class!

To receive a scholarship for the next term, you will need to submit an online Scholarship Renewal Form.
