Scholarship Guidelines

St. Joseph’s Catholic Church Senior Scholarship Guidelines

The parish of St. Joseph’s Church in Elkader wishes to support and reward youth in their senior year of high school that have shown a continued desire to be involved in religious education experiences and service to the Church particularly during their middle and high school years.

A scholarship program is available to those that plan on attending college after high school. Applicants selected for a scholarship will be chosen based on involvement in local and regional education and faith sharing programs that are supported by active service for the benefit of others and the Church.

Administrators of the funds for this program are members of the Parish Life Committee. This committee will recommend guidelines for selection of candidates to the Parish Council and upon approval these guidelines will be used as a basis for selection of scholarship winners. A selection committee appointed by the Parish Life Committee will review and select scholarship winners.
