The Church of the Sacred Heart is proud to offer theĀ  Phyllis Scherberger Service Scholarship to current students. This scholarship, a $1,000.00 grant, is endorsed and funded by the Parish Council to recognize young people in the church community who exemplify Christian values and a commitment to helping others through their service to church, school, and local communities. This program is open to students who:

  • will graduate from high school in the Spring of this year.

  • are members in good standing at the Church of the Sacred Heart
  • are actively practicing their Catholic faith (including regular Mass attendance)
  • plan to attend a two- or four-year college, university, or technical school in the next year
  • have an exemplary record of church and community service.

To apply, complete the application package and return it with your sealed letters of recommendation to the church office, ATTN: Scholarship Committee, by the due date. The applications will then be judged by a panel of volunteer graders (none of whom is a staff member, parent of an applicant, or the scholarship chair). These graders will evaluate each section of the application, with all sections weighed equally, to arrive at a composite score that determines the recipients.

 

The 2020 Scholarship information will be available in March.
