The SYF provides scholarships for financially disadvantaged youth to attend Jamboree, National Schools, Regatta or Venture. Scholarships are currently available for the Scout and Venturer sections.
Up to 15 scholarships will be available for National Schools in 2020-2021. The maximum individual grant will be 75% of the total costs of attendance ( in exceptional circumstances a higher grant may be considered). Applications must be made by the youth member’s Group Leader to the National School director / Regatta director or directly to SYF.
This year, we particularly encourage applications for individuals from Groups in Inclusion funding categories 7-10.
Scholarships will focus on creating an opportunity for youth whose financial circumstances would usually preclude their attendance at a national event. SYF scholarships are not available to cover (after the fact) unexpected expenses that might arise at an event.
