Notre Dame Vision Student Grant

Due to Covid-19, Notre Dame Vision is cancelled
for the summer of 2020

The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend and the University of Notre Dame have received a generous grant from the Our Sunday Visitor Institute to allow 55 high school students who live in our diocese to attend a Notre Dame Vision Summer Conference at a significantly reduced rate this summer. With this financial assistance made available by Our Sunday Visitor students can register and attend ND Vision for only $200 (the full regular price is $425). This price will include student meals and lodging on Notre Dame’s campus for a full conference week in addition to all activities, spirit wear, and program booklet. Applications will be accepted beginning February 17, 2020. 


We have a 12 student limit per parish for this scholarship opportunity. The diocese reserves the right to retain spots for new parishes or students.

Please check out the Emerging Leader’s Program below. Nominating youth for this leadership program will enable your youth to have access to more financial aid options and increase the number of students who can attend from your parish on scholarships. Emerging Leader Applications are due to the University of Notre Dame by Feb. 24, 2020.
