The Grand Island Diocesan Council of Catholic Women Scholarship was established several years ago to introduce the Council of Catholic Women to the young ladies of our parishes. The scholarships are awarded based on an application that includes information about their involvement with their parish and what the catholic faith means to them. The funds for the scholarships are an allocation of the General Fund of the GI Diocesan CCW Treasury which relates back to the funds that the local parishes make to the Diocesan Council through Contributions Sunday Receipts/Dues.
The Grand Island Diocesan Council of Catholic Women sponsors a Scholarship for Senior Girls who exemplify their Catholic Faith with service, leadership, and faith. This $200 scholarship is awarded following the submission of your 2nd Semester registration for classes-in your Freshman Year-at accredited 2 or 4 year college, technical college, or other specialized area of training.
