YPC is firmly committed to ensuring that all choristers graduate from high school and move on to post-secondary opportunities, but you may not know that YPC has awarded over $1.2 million  in college scholarships to outstanding alumni since 2015 through the support of the Charlotte Daniels Harris Fund of the New York Community Trust, the DJ McManus Foundation, and the generosity of YPC’s Board of Trustees.

Scholarships are awarded to choristers who have shown ongoing commitment to YPC, exhibit academic determination, demonstrate clear financial need, meet university credit requirements, maintain a grade point average of 2.8 or above, and remain in good disciplinary standing.
