Catholic Community Foundation offering student scholarships

Every year, the need for scholarships is greater than the available resources. As tuition continues to rise, support of scholarships becomes even more invaluable. The Catholic Community Foundation administers 1 scholarship fund. These scholarships are funded by donors who believe in the youth of our area and beyond and want to support their pursuit of higher education. A scholarship fund established within the Community Foundation is a great way to leave a family legacy forever.

If you are a student wishing to apply for a scholarship, online applications will be available from now until February 15, 2019.  Start the online application process, by clicking here.
