Thank you to all of the students who submitted applications   This was the first year that the process was handled electronically and we believe that it  worked rather well.  The Board was very impressed with the quality of the essays and the expressions of deep faith.  So many told of their commitment  to God and Church while outlining their service and volunteerism to the community and fellow human beings.  Also echoing throughout the  submissions was the pride in being an activist for social justice and equality.  The future of this country is in the hands of ample ethical and dedicated leaders.  Be proud of what you have accomplished so far and continue pursuing your goals to the best of your talents.

Due to the covid-19 crisis and its effect on our financial situation, coupled with the bi-annual grant to a school for a worthy project our scholarship funds were limited.  However, we did gratefully receive underwriting from the Jesse James Hinson, Jr. Estate trust which allowed us to proceed and even have a onetime Kindergarten stipend.   We plan to open next year’s application process in April.  In the interim we wish you much success in your pursuit of studies in the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
