How to Apply

2018 Young Artists Diploma program application is now open!

We are currently accepting applications for the 2018/2019 Young Artist Diploma Program through March 31, 2018.

Click here to fill out the online application form.

If you are interested in nominating a student for the program please fill out the online nomination form.

All applicants must complete the Diploma Program Application Form and apply directly to the Program. In addition, students may be nominated by teachers, school administrators, artists, and community leaders. Though it is not a requirement, we highly recommend that students try to find a nominator to strengthen their application. The Center will receive many more applications than there are spots in the program. The students selected will receive a personal interview conducted by members of East Bay Center's senior staff. This is an informal interview, there is no formal audition required, but we do like to listen to or watch a few minutes of performance if possible; this will enable us to better place the student in the proper classes, lessons, and ensembles as well as to maintain a balance in the incoming groups of new students.
