General Assembly (GA) Scholarships & Grants for Youth and Young Adults

UPDATE May 15th, 2020: Due to the generosity of our current 2020 registrants, additional registration scholarships have been made available!

Individual Youth and Young Adults Funding

There are several funding sources available that are accessible via the General Assembly Unified Scholarship Application.

A list of funding sources and a link to the online application can be found on the Scholarship Opportunities for Attending General Assembly page.

Youth Group Grants

Youth Group Grant applications will be reviewed as long as there is available funding. APPLY NOW! (PDF, 3 pages)

A limited number of competitive grants up to $1,000 are available to youth groups that are organizing to attend GA together. To qualify, groups must have generally five or more participants from the same congregation or a majority of their youth group participating. Applications will be judged by a group's demonstrated ability to raise any additional funds necessary to attend GA, and the ways in which the group will use their GA experience to enhance their congregation or community life.

Youth in groups who are applying for these grants may still apply for individual financial aid awards under the General Assembly combined scholarships funding application. Please indicate as such on your Youth Group Grant application which youth (or young adults) are also applying for those individual financial aid.

Special thanks to the Katie Tyson Fund for Youth and Young Adult Ministries, which is dedicated to kindling the sparks of leadership among Unitarian Universalist youth and young adults. The fund supports scholarships, grants, and programs for youth and young adult projects, conferences, outreach, and more.
