Grand Canyon Youth is proud to offer financial aid to those who demonstrate financial need or have a compelling circumstance.

We work hard to keep the overall price of our program as affordable as possible, and require students to actively earn their participation. Participants are eligible for financial aid once a year. Financial aid decisions are based in part on financial need, on the student’s written essay, and on available funds. A financial aid request form is available in each program packet on our forms & application page.

If you can afford our programs, please do NOT apply for financial aid so we can use these limited funds for someone who truly needs them.

Please contribute to our Adopt-a-Youth financial aid fund.

Donate to GCYYour donation ensures that our experiential learning opportunities are available to young people with minimal financial resources; 100 percent of your contribution goes directly to financial aid funds for Grand Canyon Youth participants. Last year GCY distributed over $24,000 in financial aid funds!

“Thank you! I don’t know any words that can explain just how amazing my trip was. I met so many new people and had some of the most fun experiences of my life. I learned so much, like all the species of fish and where they are found.” –GCY Participant
