The YMCA of Boulder Valley Scholarship was established to honor the long term commitment of our many donors. It is available to all currently enrolled high school seniors who have had a significant experience or connection with the YMCA. This year, we will be awarding two scholarships. A $2,500 scholarship and a $500 G. Dale Meyer scholarship. Both may be used at any accredited institution of learning, including schools with 4-year, 2-year, trade or vocational degree programs. The selection committee will review each application in terms of a combination of factors, including merit, academic and extracurricular credentials, awards, leadership, overall student achievement and the impact of the Y on the applicant.

Download the application or pick up at one of our YMCA centers. All applications are due no later than May 1, 2018. The winners of the scholarships will be notified no later than May 15, 2018.

The following items must be submitted along with your application:

  • A one page essay describing the impact that the Y has had on you, lessons learned from participation in Y programs and how the Y core values play a part in your everyday life.
  • A letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or administrator.
