As a high school senior and member of Saint Anthony Catholic Church, you are eligible to apply for two scholarships that are sponsored by our parish:
Sister Shawn Marie Koopman Scholarship
Mary Kolbe Scholarship
Letters and applications were mailed to current senior students. If you misplaced yours or haven't received the letter in the mail, please download the letterand application here and return to the church office by March 1.
Sister Shawn Marie was the Director of Religious Education at St. Anthony Catholic Church during the 1970s and 80s. She died of cancer during her time here, and a scholarship fund was established in her name. Many people have contributed to the scholarship fund, and it has provided financial assistance to more than 100 graduates during the past 30 years. Obviously, it holds a rich tradition in our parish; it is an honor to receive this scholarship.
Mary Kolbe, a retired nurse and former member of Saint Anthony Parish, donated funds to be used for an additional scholarship to one graduating senior. As you can tell from the generosity of our parishioners, we are anxious to have our senior students go onto postsecondary education and are willing to help in that endeavor.
