Bishop's Scholarship Fund Surpasses $1 Million

April 16, 2022

The Bishop's Scholarship Fund, a permanent endowed fund for scholarships, surpassed the $1 million mark! A fund of this size will provide an annual distribution of $40,000.

Bishop's Scholarships are available for a select number of students who meet the academic and extracurricular requirements of the scholarship application, are recommended by their pastor/principal, are at-risk and would benefit from a Catholic education, and would not otherwise be able to attend Catholic school.

Sixty-five students received the Bishop's Scholarship for the 2021-2022 school year.

The Catholic Foundation manages 30 endowed funds for Catholic education to ensure that the 9 Catholic campuses in the Diocese of El Paso remain strong and viable for years to come. The interest from the funds will provide for the long-term needs of our schools and help decrease student costs.

We know that education impacts lives, scholarship opportunities for Catholic schools are transforming lives.
