Tuition and Scholarship Assistance

Waldorf Education: The greatest gift you can give your child.

 

Tucson Waldorf School (TWS) is an independent, non-profit, tuition-based school. We operate without federal or state funding so that we may design our own programs and curriculum, and be self-governed. Scholarship assistance resources are available to families of all income levels whose children are enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 8.  Scholarship assistance details below.

Scholarship Assistance:

All of the scholarship resources available to TWS families come from School Tuition Organizations (STOs) funded by the Arizona Private School Tax Credit Program. TWS offers assistance through a close relationship with an STO called  Arizona Waldorf Scholarship Foundation (AWSF). AWSF was established to provide scholarships for students attending independent Waldorf schools in Arizona and other local private schools with shared values.

Arizona Waldorf Scholarship Foundation (AWSF): 520-529-1032 |www.AWSF-tax.org 

  • Needs Based Tuition Assistance through AWSF: AWSF needs based scholarships are awarded to current and newly admitted students on the basis of demonstrated need, as determined by factors such as income, family size, assets and liabilities. Families are required to reapply on a yearly basis.  Please note, you won’t know if you qualify unless you apply.
  • Non Needs Based through AWSF: Families also have the opportunity to raise their own tuition with recommended tax credits processed through AWSF.  The Arizona Private School Tax Credit Program allows Arizona State taxpayers to recommend a portion of their taxes directly to a child’s tuition at TWS.

Additional Needs-Based Scholarship Opportunities

TWS strongly encourages familes seeking needs based tuition assistance to pursue additional funding opportunities through the following STO’s that work with TWS and its families. Please visit websites directly for application deadlines.
