We’re pleased to announce that the Bishop of the Diocese of Grand Rapids is offering a Welcome Scholarship for new students to Catholic Schools.
Several key elements to note:
- Eligible applicants are incoming students who did not attend a Catholic school in the Diocese of Grand Rapids for the whole previous school year and do not currently have a sibling enrolled in a Catholic school in the diocese.
- To qualify, students (or their families) must be registered members at a parish in the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
- The scholarship is available (regardless of financial need) from Preschool through 11th grade at the following one-time award levels:
Preschool: $250 per student
K-8th Grade: $750 per student
9th-11th Grade: $1,000 per student
- Students who receive the Welcome Scholarship are still eligible for other scholarships (e.g. Bishop’s Scholarship, local school scholarships).
- If you have a new student that meets the criteria above and has already enrolled for the next school year, they are still eligible to receive the award.
