Scholarships

Introduction

Council 10232 established a scholarship program in 1994 to award scholarships to deserving graduates who are members of the St. John the Baptist Parish.

In connection with this goal, the council approved two $500 scholarships to be awarded to graduating high school seniors who will be full time students in an accredited community college, college, or university.

The council has also approved two $500 scholarships to be awarded to graduating 8th grade students from our parish school that will be attending a Catholic High School in our area.  Recipients of the 8th grade scholarships are selected by the Staff at St. John’s Catholic School (i.e., there is no application).
