Financial Aid Application

The registration fee for the YLA is $400 USD and will include food, housing, activity costs, and transportation during the week.

Financial aid is available for those unable to cover the registration fee.

A request for financial aid will not affect your application. We ask that you only request enough aid to cover the cost of the academy that is too much for you or your family’s financial resources. Please complete the application form (below) to apply.

Any questions about the costs of the YLA or financial aid should be directed to
