Parishioners from St. John Vianney Church in Gladywne, Montgomery County, have created a scholarship program that will provide financial and academic support to eligible students who desire to attend an Archdiocesan high school beginning in the 2012-2013 school year.
The Saint John Vianney Scholars program awarded eight incoming freshmen with a $3,000 a year scholarship for four years to attend an Archdiocesan high school of their choice. The first recipients were awarded their scholarships on Monday, March 12 at St. Martin de Porres School in Philadelphia.
Eighth-grade students currently attending Philadelphia parish elementary schools have been selected from those who were eligible to participate in the Connelly Foundation’s Neumann Scholars Program and who sat for the qualifying examination on Jan. 28.
The mission of the Saint John Vianney Scholars Program is to provide financial and academic support to children involved in their community and motivated to excel in school. The program hopes to provide many students with scholarships in the coming years as well as introduce this program to other parishes in the Archdiocese.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
