    Have you looked at CSSSA/ Innerspark? It's the cheapest thing you can do if you're a Californian, because below a certain income level, it's free except for the supply fee, I think. It's also held locally to you, at CalArts. It's not as rigorous as some programs.

    There's also a summer program at Otis, I seem to remember they had some scholarships, too.

    Other than that, yes, there are. Usually you have to provide a merit porfolio and recommendation and they award financial aid based on that. There are also a couple of programs that are completely paid if you get in -- others will know more about those.

    Not sure what you mean by "social", but D went to pre-college in New Hampshire, got a $500 scholarship based on teacher recommendations and grades. After completion, was awarded more merit aid to go to school, but ultimately decided on someplace else. She liked the program tho.
