We want to ensure every young person has an opportunity to attend Notre Dame Vision. The Emerging Leaders Scholarship, supported by a generous grant from Our Sunday Visitor Institute, aims to form new leaders in the Church. The scholarship is also available for individuals needing financial assistance. The scholarships will cover up to $325 of the $475 total registration fee for Notre Dame Vision. With the cancellation of Vision 2020, all scholarships will be refunded to Our Sunday Visitor. We hope to offer this scholarship again for Vision 2021.

Qualifying for the Scholarship

Emerging Leaders are young men and women who are currently in high school (or will be in the Fall of 2020) who are open and willing to provide leadership to their peers in matters of faith formation. 

  • The Emerging Leaders Scholarship is for young men
    and women who will benefit from the leadership
    development and faith formation opportunities 
    Notre Dame Vision so as to become more effective,
    confident and faith-filled leaders
    in their own communities. 
  • Emerging Leaders are also those young men and women
    interested in exploring a vocation to the priesthood
    and religious life
    so as to learn specific ways to enrich
    their vocational exploration.
  • In addition, the Emerging Leaders Scholarship seeks to
    support those young men and women who may lack the 
    financial means to attend Notre Dame Vision.


The high school student must complete an online application that includes the Vision Program application, $100 deposit payment, a two-part essay and a brief letter from an adult who is nominating the young man or woman. The Application Essay and Nomination Letter will be uploaded into the online form.  Full details and instructions can be found in the Nomination Info Packet and in the Emerging Leader Application Form.
