Dear friends in Christ,
Council 9676 of the Knights of Columbus is pleased to announce it is accepting applications for the 2015 Catholic High School Scholarship Award. This scholarship will be awarded to an eighth grade student who will be attending one of the Birmingham area Catholic High Schools or St. Bernard’s Academy starting in the 2014-2015 school year. The applicant must be a member of Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church.
The scholarship for 2015 is $4,500.00, awarded in four annual payments of $1,000.00 paid directly to the Catholic High School, with a $500.00 cash payment to the student at graduation. After the first year, the student must re-qualify for the subsequent years by maintaining a minimum grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale) (transcripts required) and demonstrating good character as a student and a Catholic. If the student maintains at least a 3.0 average all four years the final cash payment of $500.00 will be awarded to the student at graduation.
Any graduating student from the eighth grade is eligible no matter what school they currently attend. The scholarship will be awarded based on need, academics and extracurricular activities.
The application form may be typewritten or handwritten as long as it is legible. Completed applications may be submitted either electronically via email or mailed through the postal service. See below for routing instructions.
