Youth Education’s High School For-Credit Scholarship Program was created to provide greater access to our many fun, engaging, and educational programs. Scholarships helps students prepare for college and cut the summer learning loss. Summer learning is an important opportunity in a child’s development. Not only is it a fun experience, it provides the opportunity to grow, learn, and explore. Youth Education understands that summer programs are expensive, therefore our scholarship program is there to support families.
Scholarships will be awarded to students who qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced School Lunch program, or if not enrolled in the Federal Free and Reduced School Lunch program, must demonstrate other economic need through a personal letter, or may submit a letter of recommendation from a school principal, counselor, teacher, or other school official. A scholarship committee will review each application and award scholarships based on how families demonstrate financial need and the quality of the application. A scholarship is not guaranteed to all applicants.
The amount awarded for each scholarship is determined based on a sliding scale dependent on need, but all recipient families will be responsible to pay the special fee or a minimum of $30 per course if the special fee is less than $30.
To apply, first complete the online application, and then submit the required materials. The application will not be accepted without at least one of the following required materials listed below:
A letter from a school principal, counselor, teacher, or other school official providing a recommendation. The reference cannot be related to the child or family, nor can they be a conflict of interest. Letter of Recommendation
Verification of financial need (i.e., verification of Free and Reduced Lunch Program, or detailed personal letter explaining financial need)
The application will not be considered complete until all supporting materials have been submitted. Scholarships will not be awarded to incomplete applications. To avoid complications, please submit the application and material on the same day.
All submitted information is confidential. Applicants will be notified of award status via email and/or telephone.
A separate application is required for each individual child. Multi-child families MUST submit multiple applications, but can submit just one set of materials (Letter of Recommendation or verification of financial need). If submitting just one letter of recommendation for a whole family, the letter of recommendation should specify that the recommendation is for all children applying for the scholarship.
