Eligibility and Guidelines
- Scholarship will be granted on the basis of demonstrated financial need. The family income guidelines used by the Butler County Family YMCA will be used as initial eligibility criteria.
- The YMCA believes a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if the scholarship recipient contributes to the cost of their YMCA involvement; therefore, applicants will be asked to pay a portion of the membership or program fee.
- Scholarships will be reviewed for eligibility for each membership or program period. Applicants must re-apply yearly or each scholarship period.
- Scholarship eligibility will be determined by the Membership Office, based on a review of the information form. Within two to four weeks, eligibility will be confirmed or denied by mail or email. The YMCA reserves the right to refuse scholarship to any applicant. Once applicant is accepted, they must complete the standard YMCA membership application or program forms.
