The YOUTH MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP FUND was established in the Fall of 2013 to provide financial assistance to junior high and high school youth in need who wish to participate in diocesan youth ministry programs and events. Funded primarily through the Mass collections taken up at the Diocesan Catholic Youth Conference and Junior High Rally as well as private donations, scholarships underwrite a portion of program or event registration fees.
Individuals seeking scholarship assistance:
1. must first register for the program,
3. complete the application, and
4. submit the completed application to their parish youth ministry/faith formation leader two weeks prior to the parish or diocesan registration deadline (whichever is earlier).
Parish youth ministry/faith formation leaders then review the applications, indicate their recommendation for funding amount, and submit applications to the Office of Faith Formation by the earliest diocesan program registration date. Scholarship decisions will be made within one week of the deadline date, and parish leaders and recipients will be notified shortly thereafter.
