IC Catholic High School Scholarship Fund

In response to the economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and to encourage students from IC to attend Catholic high schools, Immaculate Conception Church would like to start a scholarship fund for graduates of Immaculate Conception School and the religious education program to use for tuition at Catholic high schools. We recognize the value and importance of a Catholic high school education and hope that this could potentially make a difference in the ability of our graduates to continue in Catholic education. All graduates from Immaculate Conception School or who received their Confirmation at Immaculate Conception who either will attend a Catholic high school next year or are currently attending Catholic high schools would be eligible to apply. Application materials and directions will be posted on the church website after January 1. While the amount and number of the scholarships available will depend on the amount of money raised, it is hoped that they would be a minimum of $500. Also, it is hoped that the scholarships could be renewed, funding initially is only guaranteed for one year. Traditionally, the Chicago Marathon has been used as a way to raise money for causes like this. However, since there is no Chicago Marathon this year, Fr. Robert will run a half marathon in the Norwood Park Circle on November 1 to kick off the fundraising part of our efforts.
