The people of the Archdiocese of St. Louis established this endowed fund through their contributions to the Returning God’s Gifts campaign. This ten million dollar endowment was established in May, 1999. Grants are made on the basis of financial need as determined by the application process. Grants may be used for Catholic children in Catholic families to attend an archdiocesan or parochial elementary school or an archdiocesan or parochial high school. Annual income guidelines are not published because both income and annual expenses are considered in the award process. The 2023-24 application deadline is February 28th, 2023.
Applications will be considered for students of income-eligible Catholic families who would like to attend grades K-12 at any archdiocesan or parish school. Students who are new to the school and those who already attend will be considered.
