Road Scholarship

A Road Scholarship is financial aid granted to an eligible student or young person for education or performance-related travel with their class or youth group. The SYTA Youth Foundation's Board of Trustees has the final decision as to each award and each award is made at its sole discretion.

Who Is Eligible? All Road Scholarship nominations are required to be submitted by an educator, program leader or designated school official for students in grades K-12 and 18 years of age or younger. Please note that nominations submitted by parents and/guardians will not be considered. 

How to Enter: Entrants must complete an online application on the SYTA Youth Foundation website.

Prize: The scholarship amount varies on a case-by-case basis, depending on the cost of specific trips, the demonstrated need of the applicant, and the number of applicants in a given application period. The average Road Scholarship granted is $750. No more than $1,000 will be awarded to a single student.
