Youth Leadership Academy

Financial Aid and Scholarship Information

In order to minimize financial barriers to participation, the registration fee for the Youth Leadership Academy will be $400 USD and will include food, housing, activity costs, and transportation during the week.

A limited amount of financial aid and three scholarship opportunities are available for attendees who are unable to cover the registration fee.

Applying for Financial Aid


A request for financial aid will not affect your application. However, we do ask that you only request enough aid to cover the cost of our academy that is too much for you or your family’s financial resources.

Any questions about the costs of the YLA or financial aid should be directed to yla@planusa.org.
