Changing Lives Scholarships

Helping students achieve their dreams.

Creating Opportunity

Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet offers three scholarship programs to help students make their dreams come true. Both full and partial tuition scholarships are awarded to students on a need and merit basis. 

Programs are funded through annual donor support and CPYB fundraising events. 

Male Scholarship

Creating access for male students, our Two-Year Male Scholarship awards men ages 14-19 a full two years of training and mentorship. The first of its kind, this scholarship has provided over 30 young men with the tools and means for success.

Female Training Scholarship

Raising the barre for females, our two-year Female Training Scholarship provides uninterrupted training to female students ages 14-16. Established in 2019, this scholarship awards students who demonstrate a passion and talent for the arts. 

Changing Lives Scholarship


Nourishing potential, the Changing Lives Scholarship Fund offers partial and full scholarships to students registered for the Academic Year Program and accepted into the 5-Week Summer Ballet Program. Applications for the 2020/2021 Changing Lives Scholarship are now closed. Please check back in November for scholarship applications to our 2021 5-Week Summer Ballet Program.
