Valley Scholars is focused on student relationships and success. This signature YouthPower365 program has made a big impact on the lives of local students and would not be possible without the continuous support of more than 30 donors within the community that are dedicated to providing scholarship opportunities in the range of $500 to $20,000 annually to graduating seniors in the Vail Valley.

While there are scholarships for four-year university programs, YouthPower365 realizes that this is not in the plans for many students. The scholarship committee takes this into account and also awards scholarships to students for community college and vocational programs. Each scholarship donor develops their own criteria, and individual considerations and requests are respected. 


YouthPower365 Scholarship

The YouthPower365 Scholarship will be awarded to four students annually. Two scholarships will offer up to $20,000 a year, for four years, for students seeking a bachelor’s degree from a four-year university or college, and two additional scholarships will provide up to $10,000 a year for two years to students seeking a trade or applied science degree.

The YouthPower365 Scholarship supports students in attending any university or trade school of their choice. Applicants must have completed two seasons of YouthPower365 programming, with priority given to alumni that have taken part in programming every step of the YouthPower365 continuum, which spans from our Magic Bus mobile preschool to college and career readiness programming.

To be considered for the YouthPower365 Scholarship, students should meet the following criteria:

  • A YouthPower365 Alumni: two or more full seasons of programming
  • A student who displays leadership in their life outside of school
  • A grade point average above a 3.0 with evidence of pursuing academic excellence (i.e., one AP course, Dual Enrollment or CMC course, and/or advanced level trade courses such as Level 3 woodworking)
  • Completion of an essay on how he or she has lived the YouthPower365 mission in their life and will continue to demonstrate YouthPower365 values into their post-secondary pursuits
