Our Scholarship Programs include:

The Inner-City Scholarship Fund

Inner-City Scholarship Fund changes lives for the better by providing families with demonstrable financial needs the opportunity to give their children a quality, values-based K-12 Catholic education within the Archdiocese of New York. Inner-City ensures that the gift of an excellent Catholic school education continues to be a viable option for students of all faiths today and for future generations to come.

Inner-City Catholic Schools

Nearly 70% of the students enrolled in designated elementary and secondary inner-city Catholic schools in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island come from homes living at or below the federal poverty line. The average scholarship recipient’s family income is approximately $24,000 per year. Over 50% of inner-city Catholic school students come from single-parent households.

Despite these impediments, our Catholic schools—in partnership with our donors—enable our students and their families to overcome enormous odds and, through education, tuition aid and your charitable giving, break the cycle of poverty.

We invite our like-minded friends to share their time, talent and treasure to support the mission of Catholic education. Click here to donate.

Cardinal’s Scholarship Program

This scholarship program was funded in collaboration with the Inner-City Scholarship Fund, Archdiocese of New York, Children’s Scholarship Fund, and The Partnership for Inner-City Education and their donors. During the course of the nine years since the program started, over $95 million scholarship awards were provided to nearly 13,500 students.
The program includes participating Catholic schools in Manhattan, Bronx, and Staten Island. It now includes Catholic schools located in counties North of New York City: Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester.

The Cardinal’s Scholarship Program does not anticipate admitting any new families to the program for 2014-2015.

Families who wish to apply for a Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, or Westchester Catholic school scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year, should follow the link to the Children’s Scholarship Partnership Regionalization Awards Program.

The Children’s Scholarship Partnership Regional Awards Program

These scholarships were created as a result of Pathways to Excellence, the strategic plan of the Office of the Superintendent of Schools to regionalize Catholic schools. Funded by the Archdiocese of New York and The Children’s Scholarship Fund, the program has almost 2,000 children from Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester currently enrolled.

Requirements and participating schools are different for both scholarship programs. Please review the program information carefully and apply to the program that meets your needs.

Catholic Alumni Partnership

The Catholic Alumni Partnership (CAP) is dedicated to preserving the values that Catholic elementary education instills – a trained mind, developed self and aspiring spirit. Launched in 2009, this groundbreaking initiative engages a group of proud alumni and friends who support and advocate our mission. To date, CAP has helped raise over $4 million for our schools through alumni outreach efforts. Whether you are a graduate or know someone who is, you already know how rewarding a Catholic elementary school education truly is.
