Financial Assistance for Native Flute Schools

We are aware that the financial means of participants vary greatly, and one of our goals is to make our workshops accessible to eager particpants regardless of their financial situation. Thanks to the support of sponsors, we are able to offer reduced rates for some of our workshops. This assistance is based on financial need and applies to the registration fee (not lodging).

If you have a pressing financial situation, you will have an opportunity to request financial assistance directly on the registration form.

However, please realize that we have limited funds for these financial assistance situations, and financial assistance provided to early applicants reduce our ability to offer assistance to later applicants.

Also, please realize that organizing a workshop is a substantial undertaking for the staff, not only in organization but also in a shockingly large outlay of cash (well over $20,000 in some cases). So we ask …

Please apply for financial assistance only if you would be unable to attend the workshop without that assistance.
