Scholarship recipients who turn 18 during their high school year may continue the scholarship through the completion of high school. Additional funds may be available to supplement family resources for instruments or other expenses pertaining to the student’s participation at the School. Only one scholarship is available per student at one time. Scholarships are applicable for up to one hour of private lesson instruction per week or one class.

OCMD Scholarships are available under two different programs.
Title One Scholarships: Under this Program, the student must meet California’s eligibility requirement for free or reduced cost breakfast or lunch (program sometimes called “Title One”). Students eligible for this benefit must provide a letter from the student’s school confirming qualification. Eligible students will be entitled to a 90% scholarship. Parents are responsible for the balance of the tuition.
Discretionary Scholarships: Under this Program, the criteria is based on the family’s overall ability to pay the tuition and related school expenses. If the parent can demonstrate, to the satisfaction of OCMD, an inability to pay some of the tuition, OCMD has the discretion to provide any part of the tuition that it determines would be reasonable and appropriate. OCMD may require a personal interview of the parent and student before making a final decision. The scholarship may not exceed 90% of the full tuition
Recipients must renew their scholarship at the beginning of each school year (September). OCMD reserves the right to request reverification of financial need prior to renewing the scholarship. OCMD has the right to terminate the scholarship funding for students with excessive no shows or cancellations made within 24 hours of scheduled lessons or classes, as required in the Student Policies, as well as for frequent missed tuition payments.
