Taking Action 2009
Connecting Youth * Transforming Lives
March 22-24, 2009 * Sacramento, CA
The California Coalition for Youth is offering scholarships to youth (ages 12-24 and residents of CA) who are planning to
attend the Taking Action 2009 Conference in Sacramento! Scholarship award recipients will have their conference registra-
tion fees waived, and be provided with a stipend to cover other related costs (including, but not limited to, travel, lodging and
food). In years past, scholarship amounts given have averaged $250, but can be smaller or larger. Scholarships will be
awarded based upon review of information submitted. Award preference will be given to CCY members, individuals affiliated
with a CCY member agency, and/or conference presenters. Coalition staff and members of its Board of Directors will review
submissions and make the final determination of scholarship recipients.

The Fine Print: There is no limit to the number of youth scholarship applications each agency can submit; however, prior to giving additional scholarships to youth from the same agency, we
will evaluate supporting youth from other agencies. Agencies must provide adequate adult support and supervision for all youth under 18 years old. CCY will not pay for chaperones’ costs and
scholarships will not be awarded to youth under age 18 who do not have a chaperone attending the conference. CCY retains the right to make decisions based upon merit and available
