Scholarships have been made available through various funds to provide assistance in reducing the cost of the registration to the annual youth conference. Scholarships will be awarded according to available funds and can be used to cover part or all of the registration fee to attend the meeting. Included, is the Lynn Merkel & Joanne Simpson NAPF/HOPE Scholarship, This scholarship was created in 2018 and named to honor the tireless work and the many years of leadership that these two individuals gave to the youth ministry of the NACCC.

Scholarship applications are available to all who are affiliated with a church that maintains membership in the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches.
