We want to ensure every young person has an opportunity to attend Notre Dame Vision. The Emerging Leaders Scholarship aims to form new leaders in the Church and for those individuals needing financial assistance. The scholarships will cover up to $300 of the $475 total registration fee for Notre Dame Vision. 

Qualifying for the Scholarship

Emerging Leaders are young men and women who are currently in high school (or will be in the Fall of 2021) 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 of 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 (available in January) 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 (available in January).
