JCYS Scholarship FAQs

Can I get a scholarship for Park District camps or other programs through JCYS?

No. JCYS only awards scholarships to children enrolled in JCYS programs, and the scholarships only go towards JCYS tuition. We are unable to help families with tuition assistance for non-JCYS programs.
