Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid

Our desire is that any young person who wishes to participate in Trollwood programs is able to do so. Financial Aid is awarded taking into consideration the following criteria:

  1. Financial need of the student’s family. Criteria are based on the guidelines established by the Fargo Public School’s free and reduced-price lunch program. Preference will be given to students from Cass County, ND and Clay County, MN.
  2. Proficiency (taking into consideration talent, skills and merit) of the student.
  3. Trollwood’s need to strengthen sections or departments after regular enrollment is completed.

Every applicant will be given due consideration as funds are awarded, but because of the number of applicants and limited amount of funding, every applicant may not receive funding, or may not be awarded full funding. All applicants are encouraged to seek their own other possible sources of funding.

NOTE: If a financial aid request is not fully granted, personalized payment plans are available to anyone who prefers to split up their program fee balance into multiple installments. No financial aid application is required for a payment plan; simply check the appropriate payment option box on the registration form. To take advantage of the payment plan option, a credit card is required.
