Scholarship Program at CCAE

CCAE offers need-based financial assistance. For more than a century, CCAE has served as an integral part of the fabric of our community, bringing small groups of people together to learn something new. We are committed to inviting everyone to participate in our programming, regardless of financial means. If your application is approved, CCAE will grant a scholarship that covers 50% of the class tuition. Tuition assistance can only be applied to one class per term. If your first choice is unavailable, CCAE will help you select another class.

Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis.

Classes not eligible for scholarships include those that do not meet on-site at CCAE, Food, Wine, and Spirits classes, and Studio School classes.

Full-time students at degree-granting institutions are not eligible.

To be eligible for financial assistance, your gross income must not exceed:

  • $36,450 - 1 person household
  • $49,300 - 2 person household
  • $62,150 - 3 person household
  • $75,000 - 4 person household
