The excitement here at our foundation is at a very high level.  This is the beginning of what will culminate is awarding two scholarships for $2,500 each to Catholic High School Seniors in New Jersey this Spring.  

The goal of our Foundation is to provide financial assistance, through scholarships, to the children of families who want a traditional Catholic School education.

All Seniors who graduate in 2020 are all eligible.  What the student must do is write an essay of 500 words or less describing why Catholic education is important and how it will help them moving forward in life.


For more details go to the Scholarship Info page

$2,500 is nothing to sneeze at, pass the word to your students and get those essays in the mail.  We realize that the cost of college being what it is, relatively, we are talking about a small amount of money, but every bit helps. 

So get writing and get those essays in the mail!!!!
