Donor Endowed Scholarship

Donor endowed scholarships provide opportunities for people to invest in the ministry of a Catholic education at Magnificat High School. Scholarships may be named in memory or honor of a family member, friend, or special teacher. They are an extraordinary gift, helping to fund nearly all or a portion of students’ tuition each year. For this current school year, there are 143 endowments which are funding 263 scholarships, ranging from $500 to $10,000. Scholarships are awarded on a number of criteria including financial need, academic excellence and participation in service and leadership activities. Applicants must complete a PSAS application (due November 22, 2013) and a separate Donor Endowed Scholarship Application (due November 30, 2013). Scholarship recipients and donors are invited to meet and are encouraged to form relationships that may continue beyond the students’ Magnificat career. Recipients will be notified in May 2014.
