The musicians I have met have been an amazing influence on my life, and have taught me so many skills and shown me who I want to be in life. Aviva and OAYO have provided me with so many opportunities and I will be forever thankful.

What are Omaha Area Youth Orchestra Scholarships?
Scholarships are awarded as a percentage of the tuition (25%, 50% or 75%) and based on financial need. The Federal Poverty guidelines are used to calculate the percentage of scholarship. For example:
Family of 3 with an income of $19,500 qualifies for 75% tuition scholarship
Family of 5 with an income of $45,000 qualifies for a 50% tuition scholarship
Family of 6 with an income of $90,000 qualifies for a 25% tuition scholarship
Note: All scholarships are calculated off Tier C.
Can my scholarship cover all of the tuition?
