CYFUSA Scholarships

National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC)

Scholarships to NCYC are available to those in financial need. They are intended to:

  • Increase the participation of young people from diverse cultural backgrounds and geographic settings
  • Help support those in financial need due to economic hardship
  • Include young people with physical, sensory, and/or cognitive disabilities.

Scholarships cover the cost of NCYC registration: in 2013 and 2015, the cost was $215 per person for those from NFCYM-affiliated dioceses. There were more than 1,500 requests for scholarships in 2015. The cost for 2017 is $225 per person for those from NFCYM-affiliated dioceses.

1,000 Scholarships

CYFUSA would like to raise enough funds to offer 1,000 Scholarships so young people can attend the 2015 NCYC.

There 78 million self-identified Catholics in the USA. A scholarship is $225. That is less that .01 per Catholic.

So, what can you do? Four things:

  • Pray for our young people and for the success of the 2017 NCYC.
  • Donate today so another young person can attend the 2017 NCYC. While we providedmore than 650 scholarships in 2015, we had to say no to more than 1,000 others.
  • Organize your youth group to begin fundraising now.
  • Come to the 2017 NCYC!
