Funds for students | The NOCCA Institute
The NOCCA Institute and its supporters have set up numerous funds to help NOCCA graduates on their journey toward a professional career in the arts. Some funds are dedicated to a particular department; others recognize not only achievement in a specific discipline, but also a student's character and record of community service. Students cannot apply to these funds directly; they are nominated by the faculty in their departments.
