SYTA YOUTH FOUNDATION ROAD SCHOLARSHIP
Each year, the SYTA Youth Foundation (SYF) awards money to hundreds of deserving students who cannot afford to travel due to financial hardship.
The scholarship can be up to $1,000 per child.
Applications are only accepted during the open application period, usually Feb 1-Mar 15 and again Sept 1-Oct 15.
To apply, the group leader must fill out an application online.
Go to www.sytayouthfoundation.org and click on Programs/Scholarships – Road Scholarship.
This is an easy and free way for students to set up a crowd-funding campaign so that they can seek donations through social media.
Students can each create a website to tell their story of why they need money for travel and then use Facebook and Twitter to help reach their fundraising goals.

SCRATCH CARD FUNDRAISER
Scratch Cards can be a simple, hassle free and effective way for students to fundraise for their trip.
Students can purchase these cards for $10/card and then ask friends, family and neighbors to scratch a box and donate the amount revealed…ranging from just $0.25 to $3.00.
Once all spots are scratched, the student will have raised a minimum of $150 (per card), offsetting the balance due for the tour.
To get started, go to our Scratch Cards page here.
