Financial Aid & mERIT-bASED Scholarships
Every year students struggle to raise the funds necessary to come to FASA. It's a big commitment, but one that is well worth the effort. But there's good news! FASA has partnered with an organization named FundEasy to help you raise funds for your FASA experience.
Here's the great part: Any funds you raise on your personal fundraising page will be automatically sent to the Annie Moses Foundation and will be credited to your tuition. Any amount raised above your owed amount will go toward helping another young student join you on the stage this summer. It's a wonderful way to pay it forward. If you're interested in tips on Fundraising, check out the button below.
IMPORTANT: For those of you have submitted Scholarship applications: FASA requires that you have an active FundEasy page to be considered for Scholarship funds.
Now we know: some of you may feel reluctant to ask family and friends to help out. Many of us are not used to asking for help.
But let us assure you: year after year we have seen students raise more than enough to come to the Academy. The people in your life love you and want to help you!
It's simple: FASA is a transformational event that helps young artists like you realize their musical aspirations. It's a worthy event, and your talents are worth someone's investment. So simply click below to start your own online fundraising page and make a difference!
