Applications may be obtained by clicking this link: scholarship application, writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 212.219.2527 Ext 138.

Open Center Members help sustain our work. They receive discounts on most programs (indicated at the end of each program description) and do not pay the registration fee required for workshops and ongoing classes.
Groups of 5 or more are entitled to a 15% discount, and groups of 10 or more are entitled to a 20% discount off the non-member price of most programs. In order to qualify, all parties must register in advance all at once and pay in full at that time. The discount cannot be combined with other discounts. Restrictions may apply.
Full-time students and senior citizens (65 or over) are entitled to a 10% discount on the nonmember price for full workshops or ongoing classes. Proper ID must be presented. There are no student/senior discounts for Single Evening Events, Half-Day & Mini-Workshops or Walking Tours. Some other restrictions may apply.
Early Bird Discounts
Early bird discounts are available for certain classes and training opportunities. These specials are indicated on the program pages of the catalog and website.
