Seton Scholarship Award Fund
The Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton parish family has created a scholarship award fund in honor of our patron saint, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Mother Seton, as she was known, is credited with creating the parochial school system, in the United States, by opening the first Catholic school in Maryland. She and her sisters of charity were commited to the dignity of each person and access to quality education for all.
This Scholarship Award Fund has been developed with the goal of providing financial assistance and encouragement in obtaining higher education, vocational skills and honoring military service for our High School Graduating Seniors. Our hope is that this assistance will encourage the active pursuit of an authentic Catholic life and practice during a young person’s academic or military career. We recognize that the practice of one’s Catholic Faith in a university, vocational school or military setting can be daunting and difficult and we hope that this financial assistance provides the assurance to our young people that they have the full confidence and support of their parish family as they live out a life striving to be a Saint! Our goal is to provide more than mere financial assistance. We will stay in contact with our scholarship recipients to provide spiritual and moral support and encouragement. Ultimately, this scholarship fund serves as an evangelization effort.
We want our young, Confirmed Catholics, who are living out their Catholic Faith, to have the confidence they need to go forth to love and serve the Lord.
The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish family has funded five scholarships awards, each in the amount of $500.
Each of these awards will be given to five high school graduating seniors, from our St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish family, who will be attending junior college, university, vocational school or joining the military and who meet our eligibility requirements and successfully compete for one award.
