Scholarships to Tisch School of the Arts in 1998

I have a stage actor character as an alum of Tisch, class of 1998, who went there for their undergrad drama program. In looking online I've found that Tisch basically awards need-based aid, although talent is taken into consideration. Ideally I want him to have had a full merit scholarship but it seems that's inaccurate. Would it have been possible for him to have gotten a full scholarship (through, I assume, some combination of need and merit) from Tisch/Tisch-related sources if his parents' household income was $55,000 a year with him and two brothers as dependents? Is it likely that Tisch would want him (or any particular student) enough that they would go to the trouble of figuring out a way to get a scholarship for him? I have him as someone who had a huge amount of raw talent, killed his auditions and interviews, but was relatively new to theater and started acting when he was a sophomore in high school.

If it's relevant: He's a straight white male from Oakland, not a genius but a decent student. He would be a very good fit for the program.

edit: got the answer. Thanks everyone!
