Welcome Scholarship

The Welcome Scholarship is for new families who are registered parishioners in a Diocese of Grand Rapids parish, but whose children were not enrolled in a Diocese of Grand Rapids Catholic school for any period of time during the 2016-2017 school year. Eligible candidates are incoming preschool through 11th graders who fit the above criteria and do not have a sibling currently enrolled in a Diocese of Grand Rapids Catholic school. Prior to applying for the scholarship, applicants must have completed the necessary student enrollment paperwork for the school they wish to attend. Scholarships are limited in quantity and will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis according to the following award levels: preschool: $250, K-8th: $750, 9th -11th: $1,000. If awards are available, mid-year transfer students will be eligible for a prorated award based on the quarter of entry. Separate forms must be completed for each student (as opposed to per family). Recipients are also eligible to receive additional need-based assistance through the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund and local school scholarship programs.
