Need-Based Scholarships

Tuition Assistance

Thanks to the generous support of our Annual Campaign contributors, tuition assistance is available for those with demonstrated need. Aid is awarded based on household income, family size, and financial obligations. It is limited by the availability of funds and subject to facility and program capacity.

Applicant Screening and Accountability

CSA executes a rigorous application process for tuition assistance and has developed a consistent accountability system for those who receive scholarship funds.
