CTY Scholarship support
Sharing our challenging academic programs with all bright children who qualify, regardless of their family's ability to pay, is an important part of CTY’s mission. Since 1998, the number of students receiving financial assistance has grown from one percent to more than 17 percent.
In 2012, parents, friends, alumni, foundations, and corporations provided 1,310 students with $5.1 million in financial aid to attend CTY.
CTY Leadership Circle
To recognize CTY donors who give a minimum of $5,000 annually we have created this special group. A gift at this level can provide bright students with full tuition to attend a CTY Summer Program, including the cost of books, travel, and lab fees. Or it could provide the needed resources for a student to participate in CTY's Family Academic Programs or take courses via CTYOnline. Leadership Circle gifts may also help CTY expand programming and launch new research initiatives.
Please contact Andra Lee for more information.
The CTY Scholars Program
CTY’s national outreach and scholarship program identifies academically talented 8th graders from low-income families and provides them with the support, challenge, and direction they need throughout high school to gain admission to some of the nation’s top college and universities.
Since 2004, CTY Scholars has enrolled more than 600 students. Alumni of the program have gone on to attend such schools as MIT, Stanford University and Johns Hopkins University. To hear from Johns Hopkins freshman Brittany Thomas and other CTY Scholars, click here.

Alumni Scholarship Fund
No one knows better than our alumni the impact CTY can make on a student’s life. Gifts to CTY’s Alumni Scholarship Fund support students from families that would otherwise not be able to participate. CTY alumni have given more than $2,000,000 over the past seven years to help nurture the next generation’s brightest minds. Please contact Andra Lee for more information.
