Over 98% of CIM's conservatory students receive scholarship support which comes from unrestricted annual giving (Annual Fund), endowed scholarships and foundations. In 2012-13, CIM awarded more than $8 million in scholarship support and even more is needed to fully match the financial needs of every student. [See what scholarship means to our students]
