MUSEUM AND NWFC CLOSED: The Portland Art Museum and Northwest Film Center are closed in an effort to further stem the spread of COVID-19. All public programs, screenings, and events are canceled until further notice. Stay connected to art, film, and more by signing up for our newsletter.

Families with a high interest child or teen and significant financial need may request tuition assistance for any currently enrolling camps or youth classes (except for the Media Arts Academy). You cannot use this form to apply for assistance for the Media Arts Academy. 

High interest might be demonstrated by attitude, experience (in-school or out of school) or other indicators. Significant financial need is present when it is impossible for a family to consider enrollment without a substantial reduction in tuition.

There is no formal deadline. Applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted. Only one application (one child) per family per year.

The selection committee will review and make notification within seven business days of receiving your application, so please be mindful of camp dates that your child would like to attend.
