Diocesan Schools Tuition Assistance

BISHOP’S SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The mission of the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund is to help families afford a Catholic Education. In this past year, the BSF awarded nearly $2.5 million in aid to families at the Diocesan elementary schools in Fairfield County.

 

All families who have a child or children registered, or are new applicants, in a Diocesan-sponsored Catholic elementary school in Fairfield County (Grades K -8) and are in financial need of tuition assistance are encouraged to apply through FACTS online, www.FACTSmgt.com/aid. Consideration may be given to families with multiple elementary school-aged children.

 

Applications are evaluated and determinations made by the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund Committee. Awardees’ families are notified through FACTS and scholarship distributions are made directly to the school on behalf of the successful scholarship applicant.

 

2022-2023 Applications open February 1. The deadline for Returning Families to apply is March 15.
