The Diocese of Sioux City and St. Edmond Catholic School recognize the unique qualities of each family and the significant financial commitment of a Catholic education. The Diocese of Sioux City is offering four different scholarships to assist families at all income levels. The scholarship application deadline is April 1, with scholarship awards being announced the week of May 30, 2022. Each family should complete an on-line TADS (third party vendor) application through St. Edmond’s website — www.st-edmond.com.
The four diocesan scholarships:
1. Monsignor Lafferty Tuition Foundation (MLTF) Scholarship (preK-12) — Funded by MLTF con-tributions, these scholarships are awarded to families who meet the income eligibility requirements gov-erned by the state of Iowa.
2. Together As One Fund (K-12) — Funded by the Diocese of Sioux City Together As One campaign, these scholarships are geared to families who are registered parishioners in the diocese.
3. Parent Partner Fund (K-12) — Funded by the Bishop’s Dinner for Catholic Schools, these scholarships assist families at the upper income limits.
4. Catherine Birzle Education Trust (9-12) — Funded through a trust, high school students are eligible to apply for awards, based upon need.
• When applying for diocesan scholarships you are also applying for local St. Edmond scholarships which will be awarded in mid- to late June.
“I strongly encourage every family to complete an application,” said Kate Stucky, director of operations and finance at St. Edmond. “The Diocesan Scholarships coupled with our local St. Edmond scholarships makes Catholic Education affordable for all. This is a wonderful opportunity for families.”
