The Albuquerque Youth Symphony Program believes firmly that finances should not prevent any motivated, qualified student from participating. As such, AYSP provides tuition assistance to many families in need each season. Financial concerns should not prevent any student from auditioning for AYSP! During the audition process, families in need ask for a Financial Aid Application, which can also be downloaded below. All application information is kept 100% confidential. Each season an AYSP committee reviews applications considering family size, annual income, and extraordinary situations. AYSP may provide up to 90% reduction in tuition for qualified families. Applying for financial aid is a part of the audition registration process.
Tuition rates are set annually in the Spring for the following season and vary by ensemble. Tuition covers only a portion of the cost per student, and, as a non-profit organization, AYSP works to raise the additional funding to operate the program through private donations.
Uniform Fee - $65 (2017-2018 Season): Students enrolled in high-school ensembles are required to own an AYSP uniform. Girls must purchase a uniform dress through AYSP, and boys have the option to purchase a black suit jacket through AYSP or provide their own. The same uniform may be used throughout a student’s participation in the high-school ensembles. The uniform fee may be waived through tuition assistance awards for qualified families. Audition Fee - $10: Each student who auditions is required to pay a one-time, non-refundable audition fee annually.
AYSP offers a variety of payment options.
