Bishop Hurley Announces:
Welcome Scholarships for Catholic School Students
The Welcome Scholarship fund is a new program open to any student not previously enrolled in a Catholic school of the Saginaw Diocese, regardless of religious affiliation or household income. The scholarship is being funded by a generous $100,000 contribution from the Saginaw-based Wolohan Family Foundation , with a match by the Diocese.
The Diocese will offer $1,000 scholarships for high school students; $750 for grades 1-8; and $500 for kindergarten, and has pledged to provide additional funds to ensure every request is met. For more information on this and other financial support for current Catholic school students, contact the Office of Catholic Schools at 989-797-6651.
Those interested in applying for a new student scholarship may visit the Welcome Scholarship page of the diocesan website. There are 13 Catholic schools in the 11 county Diocese, which this year are educating nearly 2,100 students.
