The Father Michael J. McGivney Vocations Scholarship is awarded based on financial need. To apply for this scholarship, the applicant must provide a statement detailing (1) his financial obligations (tuition, room and board, books, clothes, loans, etc.), (2) the (arch)diocese’s or religious institute’s obligations (tuition, room and board, etc.), and (3) any monies he receives from the (arch)diocese or religious institute to offset his expenses.
Any applicant with appropriate ecclesiastical approval, having been accepted at a major seminary, and studying for an (arch) diocese or religious institute in the United States, its territories, or Canada is eligible. Special consideration may be given to upperclassmen who are members of the Knights of Columbus, or whose fathers are members, and/or those with a background in the military. Once awarded, the scholarship is renewable each succeeding year up to a maximum of four years upon certification of continuing study/enrollment. The scholarship is not, however, available during any year of pastoral internship. Notification must be received of acceptance or continued enrollment.
