If you are a high school senior or know a high school senior, be sure to check out the Treasure Valley Family YMCA Civic Engagement Scholarship. Apply online through the Idaho Community Foundation. Applications are due April 1st.
Each high school in the service area of the Treasure Valley Family YMCA may nominate one, and only one, candidate for a scholarship each year, so be sure to work with your school counselor during the application process.
Eligible students are:
- Seniors of public, private, charter, or parochial high schools in the geographic area served by the Treasure Valley Family YMCA (Ada and Canyon Counties)
- Have made significant contributions to their community through community service, etc. beyond that which may be required by school, church, Key Club, or similar organizations
- Demonstrate passion for and dedication to working collaboratively to find solutions for civic issues (whether homelessness, healthcare, education, environment, etc.) and an interest in pursuing civic work (whether career or volunteer) that will strengthen and improve our communities. This scholarship will be awarded on the basis of demonstrated commitment to working within our communities to bring positive change and not based on academic or athletic achievement. Consideration will be given to students who may have difficulty furthering their education without financial assistance.
