Scholarship Program

The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit believes in providing membership and program services to all who desire to participate. The YMCA’s financial assistance program, supported in part by the Annual Campaign, uses all available resources to provide support to those who have financial need and qualify for assistance. Scholarships are determined on an individual basis using a sliding scale and are reviewed regularly. Those applying for financial aid towards the GOTR program will be required to pay a minimum of $36  deposit that will be counted toward their total $136. Financial aid is based on income, not everyone who applies will be awarded, and those awarded will not always receive the same amount. The participant is responsible for any remaining payment not covered by financial aid and  deposit.

CLICK HERE to download the YMCA Scholarship Application. This should be completed and returned to any local YMCA along with the appropriate paperwork. Spring Scholarship application deadline is February 28th, 2018.

For more information or assistance with your application please call the Girls on the Run main office at 313-223-2790.
