Full and half scholarships
At EYT, we believe that high-quality theatre classes should be available to all children, regardless of their financial background. We understand that our prices may not be affordable to everyone, and since we don't receive any government funding, we can't reduce the fees for all students. We are however committed to offering both full and half scholarships to those students who need them.
For students who have two parents (or a single parent) benefiting from allocations de chômage / werkloosheidsuitkering, we offer one half scholarship place per class. This means that half of the annual fees are waived as long as the family is still receiving benefits. Parents are asked to prove their status each term: this is to ensure that these places go to those who need them.
For students whose parents benefit from the bénéficiaire d'intervention majorée (BIM) / verhoogde tegemoetkoming status, we can offer a full scholarship place. This means that all fees are waived as long as the family is still receiving benefits. We can also offer this scholarship in other scenarios, such as for students with refugee status. If you are unsure whether you qualify, contact us and we can have a discussion. We offer five full scholarship places across the youth theatre. Parents are asked to prove their status each term: this is to ensure that these places go to those who need them.
75% Fees (extra child)
For parents who already have one child enrolled, the second (and any subsequent) child receives a 25% reduction in fees.
How to apply for a scholarship?
To apply for a full or half scholarship, you can get in touch with us using the Youth Theatre enquiry form, and click the "I qualify for a discount" drop-down menu. In the menu, select the discount that you qualify for.
When our team contacts you, they will ask you for a certificate from your mutuelle / mutaliteit proving your status as a beneficiary of the BIM / verhoogde tegemoetkoming, or for a document from the Forem (Wallonia), Actiris (Brussels) or VDAB (Flanders), proving you are a beneficiary of allocations de chômage / werkloosheidsuitkering. You will be asked to prove this every term, in order to ensure that places are going to those who need them.
Please note that there are only a limited number of scholarship places available, and a place may not be available in the teaching centre of your choice. If a place is available in another teaching centre, you will be offered that one. If no scholarship places are currently available, you have the option of being added to a waiting list until a place becomes available for your child.
