Additional Information About RIYT Scholarships:  Who Qualifies?

As a general guideline, participation in the free or reduced lunch program at a school qualifies participants for scholarship assistance. RIYT acquires all its money for scholarships through donations made to our annual fund and ads placed in our program booklets. RIYT welcomes the participation of all families attending our programs in acquiring donations and ads. RIYT is only able to provide scholarships up to the amount that we raise in scholarship donations. We will respond to all scholarship requests one week before a program starts. RIYT asks each family to request scholarships for no more than one program per season.
