The Catholic Foundation Awards Scholarships To 35 Students

This year, over 35 students in the diocese received awards from 21 scholarship funds at The Catholic Foundation totaling over $142,000. Scholarships support promising and deserving students by assisting them with the costs of their education. Donors often establish a scholarship to honor or memorialize friends, teachers, family members or other loved ones. Since 2007, The Catholic Foundation has awarded over $430,000 in scholarships empowering over 100 young people to continue their academic and vocational studies. With continued generosity of donors who share this dedication to education, the Foundation will continue to support students as they answer God’s call.

In an effort to streamline the process, the Foundation made it easier than ever to apply with a complete listing of available scholarships, qualifications, and applications on its website. The recipients were selected based on criteria established by the donor who created each scholarship. For more information on tuition assistance, please contact the Office of Catholic Schools or your local school.
