DPL Scholarship Program The Dallas Parochial League wants to recognize the student in the term “Student-Athlete.” It will do this by offering 4-6 separate $500 scholarships to worthy students each school year. Funding for these scholarships will be provided through various sources such as the DPL Golf Classic and Championship Football t-shirt sales.
The Dallas Parochial League will present the winners with $500 checks made payable to the appropriate Catholic schools in the Spring.
For additional information, please visit the DPL website.
High School/ Scholarship Opportunities:
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas offers a one-time scholarship award of $500 for an 8th grade student who is entering a local Catholic high school. The award is presented the first week of June. Click here for more details and the scholarship application.
The Catholic Foundation Scholarship Fund The Board of Trustees of The Catholic Foundation has renewed a scholarship fund for each Diocesan Catholic high school for the 2018-19 school year. In addition to other criteria, students must be of the Catholic faith and must present a need. Students planning to attend one of the Catholic high schools who might be eligible for one of these scholarships should contact the high school directly for more information.
