Youth Board Scholarship Application

Each year the Youth Board of CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center sponsors a Vigo County School Corporation (VCSC) high school student to participate in CANDLES’ summer trip to Auschwitz.

This scholarship program enables students to serve as witnesses to the tragedy of the Holocaust and helps them become informed citizens with a sense of purpose in promoting respect and responsibility in our community. Visiting Auschwitz and learning from a survivor is an unforgettable journey that very few people will have the chance to experience; and now a VCSC student will have this opportunity.

Please submit application by January 25, 2021. Finalists will be contacted for an interview. 

Mail complete application to:
