Purpose of this Fund:
The exclusive purpose of the Fund is to provide college scholarships for practicing Catholic students graduating from Catholic, private, and public high schools within the Diocese of Venice in Florida. It is the donor’s requirement that the scholarship recipients be the first-generation in their family to attend a college or university. However, if no qualified first-generation students apply for the scholarship, the Foundation can accept applications from qualified second-generation students.
Why Support a Scholarship Fund?
Scholarships support promising and deserving students by assisting them with the costs of their education. Donors often establish a scholarship to honor or memorialize friends, teachers, family members or other loved ones.
