John Paul II PTO Scholarship

The John Paul II School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) awards an annual one- time $500 scholarship to an alumni of John Paul II School.  To qualify the student must be graduating from Mitchell Sr High or Mitchell Christian School and attending an accredited college, vocational/technical school or university in the fall semester. The student also must have attended
John Paul II School for a minimum of three years, and                                                        must have graduated from sixth grade at John Paul II.  

The intent of the scholarship is twofold.  The PTO wishes to promote Catholic Education within the city of Mitchell, and also aid in the continuing education of students who have graduated from John Paul II School.

Applications are due by April 16, 2018.  Application period is now open..

Applications may be mailed or dropped off at John Paul II School.

This scholarship is managed by the Mitchell Foundation for Catholic Education.  
Questions may be directed to Nicole Fuhrer, Development Director at or 605.999.9127.   

In 2013 the John Paul II PTO established the PTO Scholarship Endowment with the Mitchell Foundation for Catholic Education.  The hope is that as the endowment grows the scholarship amount will grow, and to one day be able to grant multiple scholarships.  Please click the secure donation button below to make a contribution.  Thank you!
