Fund for Access

The Fund for Access was established in the 1990s as a means to provide high-caliber performing arts instruction to Hartford-area students who otherwise might not be able to afford it. The fund has been generously supported by  private individuals, foundations, and corporations, but requires annual donations and gifts from the community to meet the ongoing needs of qualified students.

In the 2014–15 school year more than $139,000 in aid was awarded to over 190 students.
