Scholarships are awarded each year depending on funds available and the number of applicants eligible.

  • Student character: integrity, responsibility and kindness
  • Academic performance: includes grade point average and rigor of courses 
  • Extracurricular activities: school, church, community activities and after-school/summer employment

Application: Please note, the following attachments are required to complete this online application:

  • A short letter addressed to “Cathedral Scholars Donors.” This letter will be shared with our donors, so you can think of it as a thank you letter. We want the donors to experience the importance of their funding, so focus your letter on what this academic year has meant to you and how the scholarship helped make that possible. While the content is entirely yours to determine, suggestions are to discuss highlights of the year, how the year has helped you achieve your goals, or how this year has helped you grow as a person. You may sign your name to the letter, which makes it more personal, or you may sign the letter as “Cathedral Scholar” if you prefer to keep your identity private.
  • A copy of the financial aid letter from your school. This letter should indicate anticipated expenses and funding. If this is only available online, then submit a printout of the online information. If you are not working with your school’s financial aid department, then submit a document of your own creation.
  • A copy of your current school transcript. If your grades are available online, it is permissible to submit a download from that site.
