2020 CAELI Scholarships and Financial Aid

The Guild is grateful to offer both financial aid and full scholarship opportunities for CAELI. If eligible, you may apply for both financial aid and up to one scholarship opportunity. In order to apply for financial aid and/or scholarships, you must indicate your interest on the application form.

Financial Aid

The Guild is proud to provide financial assistance to candidates who are accepted into the program and demonstrate a need for some level of financial assistance to participate. All applications seeking financial aid will be reviewed and considered. However, priority for financial aid is given to leaders of color, leaders from organizations with budgets under $300K, and independent artists. You may request financial aid through the CAELI application form itself.
