Y-Arts Scholars: scholarships for creative youth


Founded in 2011 with the generous support of an individual donor, the Y-Arts Scholars Program provides scholarships for talented Syracuse youth with demonstrated financial need. Each year, Y-Arts Scholars provides over 200 scholarships for such programs as visual arts workshops, music lessons, Arts Camp, and the Young Authors Academy--all at no charge to the students' families.

Our hope is to expand the Y-Arts Scholars program, and to provide even more scholarships in 2015. To do that, we need your support! To find out how you can help, give Arts Branch Executive Director Phil Memmer a call at 474-6851 x328, or email pmemmer@syracuseymca.org.


thank you!

The Y-Arts Scholars program receives major support from Delta Air Lines. Their two-year "Force For Global Good" grant has helped us to expand the Y-Arts Scholar Program, more than doubling the number of scholarships we are able to provide--more than 230 in 2014! Thank you, Delta Air Lines, for making it possible for these talented youth to participate in the arts.
