Vincent de Paul Scholarship Program

The Vincent de Paul Scholarship Program, established by the SCL Health System, provides scholarships to assist SCLHS employees' children who plan to pursue post-secondary education in college and vocational programs. Interest from the fund is used each year to provide scholarship awards ranging from $500 to $3,000 per student.

Scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited post-secondary institution of the student's choice. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, disability, or national origin.

A total of $64,000 was distributed for the current academic year with the 35 students meriting scholarships ranging from $1,400 to $3,000. 

The program was established system-wide as an additional benefit for employees. Children of SCLHS employees can apply from January 1 through March 1. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of financial need, academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals, and an outside appraisal. Students must complete 80 hours of community service in the community where they are going to school during the year they are scholarship recipients.

The Scholarship Program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a department of Citizens' Scholarship Foundation of America, Inc. (CSFA). CSFA is a national non-profit educational support and student aid service organization that seeks to involve and assist the private sector in expanding educational opportunities and encouraging educational advancement.
