This is just one of many ways that our council serves our communities and parishes. We have been fortunate enough to have fundraisers help make this scholarship fund a reality. Without the generosity of the communities and the parishes that we serve, this would not be possible. Thank you all for your kindness and support of our council.

Those interested in applying for this scholarship should read through this application and eligibility requirements, fill out the application, and then submit it to the address listed on the attached form. There is not a set number of scholarship awards to be given out – it is based upon the applicant pool and funds available in a given year.

• Must attend, or plan to attend, during the upcoming school year, a 2- or 4-year college or a vocational school. This can be in-state or out-of-state.

• Must be an active parishioner in one of the three parishes served by the John C. Hecht Knights of Columbus Council 13103.

• Must demonstrate community and/or church service (see application).

• Applicant may apply for this award during any of his/her first 4 years of higher education.
