The purpose of the Youth Program Scholarship Fund is to make Young Religious Unitarian Universalist (YRUU) experiences accessible to as many individuals as possible.
YRUU in the Pacific Western Region inspires youth to:
- Articulate their beliefs
- Develop a spiritual practice
- Engage in justice making rooted firmly in faith, love and trust
- Foster personal and religious resilience
Commitment from the youth, their congregation, and the larger movement, foster growth for our youth; therefore all applicants are expected to also seek funds from their home congregation, fundraising, etc.
Criteria for Evaluation
- Value the YRUU experience will have for you, your friends and home congregation
- Demonstration of a solid relationship with your home congregation
- Demonstration of a reasonable need for financial assistance
- Secured funding from multiple sources: participant’s congregation, personal fundraising, camper’s family, etc.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss the application process please contact Eric Bliss, Pacific Western Region Youth Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
