Scholarships

Children’s Theatre Workshop aims to be accessible to every young person interested in the creative outlet the stage can provide.

CTW is excited to announce that we are an approved vendor for The Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) Program!

ACE Qualified Education Service Provider

The Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) is an educational savings account program that provides funds for students and families to use on various enrichment and educational activities, including any of Children’s Theatre Workshop’s programs!

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:

Ohio families whose household income is 400% or lower than the poverty line or who residing in districts identified as having a high rate of chronic absenteeism or have one or more schools identified as EdChoice eligible (View the full list of eligible districts)  should apply for Ohio ACE vouchers to fully pay for their tuition for Children’s Theatre Workshop. ACE vouchers can cover any CTW class, workshop, or camp. If you’re not sure if your household is eligible, see the graphic below.

IF YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS OVER 400%:

Then just go ahead and register for programs as usual!

IF YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS UNDER 400%:

You have the choice to apply for ACE vouchers, but we definitely recommend it!

IF YOUR HOUSEHOLD WISHES TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP FROM CTW:

If you are in Ohio (and your child is at least 6 years old), you must first apply for ACE vouchers. If you can, use ACE vouchers in lieu of a scholarship. If you are not in Ohio or are denied ACE funding and are still under 400%, email that letter to us at office@ctwtoledo.org along with your scholarship application to CTW, which is located here. If you used all your ACE vouchers elsewhere, send proof of that to us at office@ctwtoledo.org along with your scholarship application.

To apply for ACE funding, download the user manual below and follow the steps to register.

I APPLIED FOR ACE VOUCHERS AND AM WAITING TO HEAR BACK. HOW DO I HOLD A SPOT AT CTW FOR MY CHILD?

Reach out to us at office@ctwtoledo.org or call 419-244-5061 and we will register your child and take some basic information we need to get your spot held while we wait for ACE.
