Thanks to alumni and friends of JYM, we are able to provide approximately $65,000 in program scholarships annually to students in need of financial assistance. Due to the provisions of our scholarship funds, nearly all awards are for students on the full year program. Awards generally range from $2000 to $4000 (the average of JYM scholarships awarded to full-year students in 2018-19 was $4,150). The JYM scholarship application form is part of the JYM online application procedure (see Apply). Award decisions are not made until after the application deadline.
