High School Scholarships

Every year, the Catholic Services Appeal Foundation funds 320 need based scholarships of $2,500 each for students to attend one of the 13 Catholic High Schools of the Archdiocese.

There are thousands of applicants for this aid every year and the 320 students selected have great financial need. Without the $2,500 they receive from the Catholic Services Appeal Foundation, they would likely not be able to attend Catholic High School. Scholarship recipients come from all 4 corners of the Archdiocese – meaning that we all benefit from this ministry.
