Hello World scholarship PROGRAM

Thank you for your interest in our Hello World's Scholarship Program!

Our goal is to assist as many families with financial need as possible. While we would love to help every student attend our courses, please note that limited aid is available, and an application is not a guarantee of a scholarship. If you are applying for assistance for more than one student, please submit a separate application for each student.

Fall 2019 Scholarship Application Period: August 5, 2019 - September 3, 2019; applications must be submitted by 11:59pm PST.

We will continue to accept applications after the application period closes. However, late applications will only be considered if additional funding is available.

Application components

  • Families will be required to submit an IRS income transcript for your application to be considered complete. Details for how to retrieve and submit this are provided below.

  • You will be asked to state how much aid you need to send your student to one or more course. In an effort to make our courses open to as many students as possible, individuals asking for a lower partial scholarship may receive preferential treatment.

  • Students will be required to submit a letter, picture, or video (or some combination thereof) explaining why he/she would like to attend a Hello World course.

  • You may apply for both Spring and Summer courses in one application form, as long as each submission is for an individual student.

IRS Transcript Submission
To verify your income, please send us a copy of your IRS transcript. Please note this is required for all applications and that your application will not be considered without this submission. You can obtain your transcript here: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript and click on "Get Transcript Online". This will require creating an account on the website. If you don't already have an account, it should take 15 minutes to create one. Once you have created an account, you can access your transcript by selecting “Account Transcript” for the most recent tax year. Download this transcript as a PDF and e-mail it to molly@helloworldstudio.org. Please note that the transcript includes your Social Security Number and a tracking number at the top of the page (and may include it elsewhere as well). For confidentiality and security purposes, please black out this information before sharing the PDF (you may want to print out a copy, redact your information, and scan/take a picture of the redacted copy). Hello World will not share your information with anyone and we will destroy your transcript after the selection process, but we are not responsible for the confidentiality of your SSN if you do not redact it from your application. If your child is selected for a scholarship, Hello World may require a printed Account Transcript (with SSN redacted).
List out each course for which you are requesting financial assistance and the amount of support you would need for your student to be able to attend that course. Please note preference may be given to smaller amounts so more families can have access to Hello World courses.
Student Merit Information
