Last year we granted 10 scholarships under the Father Singer Nativity Scholarship program. This year in addition to the primary funding, there were also funds available from the final year of Changing Lives Together activity. As a result, the minimum award amounts have been increased for this year only by $250. For this year, minimum award amounts are at least $1,250 for Higher Education, at least $750 for Parochial Secondary Education, and at least $500 for Parochial Primary Education.
The proposed changes have been reviewed and approved by the Parish Council. All three categories are limited to active members of Nativity. The applications are to be received not later than June 1st to be considered. Awards will be chosen from qualified applicants in the order they are received.
Application forms are color coded with the application on the front and guidelines on the back. The submission period is April 1st thru June 1st. Forms are available in the back of church through May. The application forms for Higher Education are green. The application forms for Parochial Secondary Education are yellow. The application forms for Parochial Primary Education are lavender. If someone wants to have an electronic version of a form, they can email a request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will send them one.
Funds for the Father Singer Nativity Scholarship program are maintained by Archdiocese of Detroit. Donations to the Father Singer Nativity Scholarship fund are welcome and can be mailed to the church office, indicating their intention. A summary of the program is available in the Our Work section of the Nativity website.
Scholarship committee members are Fran Carnaghi, Danny Wois, Chris McLaughlin, and Harry Wimble. Questions about the scholarship program can be directed to any scholarship committee member.
And again remember, all applications must be received by June 1st to be considered.
