For over 15 years, the Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Our Lady Queen of Apostles, Court #2391, of St. Ignatius Martyr Church, has awarded over $17,500 in scholarship monies to assist parish students in furthering their education. This year, one $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior who plans to attend an accredited university, college, or technical school for the 2017 school year. Only applicants who are parishioners of St. Ignatius Martyr Catholic Church are eligible to apply.
This year’s scholarship essay theme is “Who is my neighbor? Do I welcome people of other nationalities and religions, and how does my Catholic faith and American citizenship influence me in this area?” Scholarship application forms are available in the back of the church and at the church office.
