Notre Dame Vision Student Grant

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 a limited number of 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 more than 50 high school students from our diocese will be able to register and attend ND Vision for only $200 (the full regular price is $450). This price will include student meals and lodging on Notre Dame’s campus for a full conference week (overview here) in addition to all activities, spirit wear, and program booklet. Applications will be accepted beginning February 15, 2020. 


As this is a very formative and powerful experience for our young people, priority will be given to those who have not attended ND Vision before and who submit their application prior to March 1st. 12 student limit per parish. 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. Applications are due to the University of Notre Dame by Feb. 20, 2020.
