Inner-City Scholarship Fund

 

 

 

 

Thanks for your interest!
 
Thank you for your interest in the Inner-City Scholarship Fund, the signature program of the Catholic Schools Foundation of Boston. Through this fund, thousands of children in need receive partial scholarships to attend Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Boston.
 
CSF awards grants to qualifying schools along with guidelines for distributing the money. Using its funding level and the guidelines, each school manages its own scholarship application process. Typically schools have a committee that reviews scholarship applications and communicates each student's financial aid package.

Please contact your school if you are interested in a scholarship from the Catholic Schools Foundation.

 

Since the application review process is conducted at the school level and because the schools may have other sources of financial aid available, students' families should contact the principal(s) at the school(s) the student wishes to attend. Application materials, requirements and deadlines are provided by each funded school and may vary from school to school.
