Members, companions and province staff again have the opportunity to nominate students for the Kansas City Province Scholarship. The scholarship application packet is available here and on the Kansas City Province website scholarship page.
Ten $1000 scholarships will be awarded to students attending, or planning to attend, a Catholic high school or college. Student nominees should be those who may not have the means to attend a Catholic institution unless financial assistance is available. The young people should be involved in their local church, community or school. Students must be recommended by members, companions, or province staff. Students may be awarded a scholarship twice, not necessarily in consecutive years. This policy of receiving no more than two scholarships was established in the last few years to give this opportunity to more students.
Thank you to those who have recommended students to receive scholarships and thanks to the province for continuing to fund this cause. Recipients will be notified of their scholarship award by April 5, 2015. The students’ schools will receive the scholarship money in October 2015.
