**Note: Your scholarship request must be submitted by the assigned due date given to you by your local staff member. If the scholarship request is submitted after that date, there is no guarantee that it will be included.
Please speak with your BBYO Staff before submitting after the assigned due date.
Our Region’s goal is to ensure the maximum number of members participate in any programming experience made available to them. We recognize that high levels of participation in BBYO can often be financially expensive, and therefore designate scholarship funds that members can apply to receive to help them attend Regional and International programs.
Each person requesting financial aid from BBYO must be a member in good standing of BBYO. Financial aid will only be awarded to pay the cost of BBYO sponsored Regional programs and the cost of transportation to such programs. Our Region has limited funds for scholarship. We expect that scholarship recipients will bring back valuable skills and knowledge to BBYO after they attend programs, and expect them to remain active and positively involved in their respective Chapters and cities. In most instances, scholarship recipients will be asked to volunteer in their BBYO offices, for the scholarshiped event or assist with other tasks throughout the BBYO year.
To apply for financial aid totaling greater than 25% of the program, the family should note the special circumstances in the financial aid application. Applications of this kind will only be considered if the applicant submits the first page of the applicant’s parents’ 1040 tax forms with the application. Requests over 25% of cost will be considered after receipt of tax forms.
Families requesting financial aid must not discuss their requests or their awards received with others. Doing so may jeopardize future financial aid eligibility.
Staff will notify applicants of financial aid awarded by email. Members needing additional funds beyond the awarded assistance should contact your local staff member.
All scholarship inquiries and applications received will be strictly confidential. Please contact your BBYO staff or local Advisors with any questions.
