Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

San Diego Junior Theatre Tuition Assistance


San Diego Junior Theatre is pleased to offer full or partial funding to families who would otherwise be unable to participate in our educational programs. Tuition Assistance can be granted to a family for up to two consecutive sessions (except summer camp). Separate applications must be submitted for each session.

Application deadlines apply, and should be confirmed before submitting an application by calling the Administration Office at (619) 239-1311. Because Junior Theatre receives a high demand for assistance each session, it is each applicant’s responsibility to submit complete application forms and all requested documents before each deadline.

Applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are informed of their eligibility one week prior to the first class or camp.

SDJT You Will Be Found Scholarship


The You Will Be Found Scholarship (formerly the Christian Rowley Scholarship) is designed to further promote diversity and inclusion at Junior Theatre. Each year, up to four students, between the ages of 8-17, will receive a one-year-long scholarship that covers one Junior Theatre class or camp per session (total of four) and all production fees.

The ideal scholarship candidate will be new, or have limited access to Junior Theatre and possess the following qualities:

• Inspired by some aspect of theatre

• Looking for a place to belong

• Has something unique (not necessarily theatre-related) to bring to the Junior Theatre community

Submissions for 2022 has closed. The scholarships for 2022 will be awarded on the opening night of Junior Theatre’s spring production of The Lightning Thief, on April 29, 2022. Submissions for 2023 will open in September 2023. Details on applying, along with the application form, will be available here at that time.
