Providing Opportunities 

Every child deserves the opportunity to be their best selves. Wisconsin Youth Company strives to provide that without barriers for families. Through our tuition assistance, we make programs available to all families regardless of if they can afford the program fees.  

Wisconsin Youth Company supports families in attaining funding through other sources such as WI Shares and the City of Madison Child Care Assistance Program. We also have our own scholarship fund which allows us to meet the needs of families who may not qualify for other funding. 

Scholarships are awarded to eligible families as funds are available. For the past 10 years, WYC is proud to have awarded scholarships to every family who applied. Families are eligible primarily based on financial need or other compelling family circumstances, which can be short-term or long-term.  

We understand that child care is a large expense for families. We invite all families who feel the need to apply. The WYC Scholarship Committee considers all families’ circumstances and will award scholarships as available.
