The Crucible prioritizes scholarship awards to low-income households, youth and adults living and/or attending school in West Oakland or the East Bay, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) youth and families.
Low-income BIPOC youth and adults and those who need financial support to attend are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are awarded to youth and adults based on the strength of their applications, financial need, and class availability.
Incomplete applications will not be processed. Youth students must be ages 8-17, and if awarded a scholarship will be placed into age-appropriate classes. Requests for specific sessions and classes are not guaranteed.
