We are blessed to have many generous donors who have established and continue to fund more than twenty need based and merit based scholarships. These scholarships are in addition to the other Student Aid programs which includes the LCSS Tuition Assistance, SGO Grants and the Indiana School Choice Scholarship (voucher).
We are excited to announce a new scholarship, the Fritz and Ellen Holzgrefe Scholarship. Fritz and Ellen (pictured to the right) were ardent supporters of the Lafayette Catholic Schools. Their children Fritz Jr. CC ’86 and Regis CC ’93 established the scholarship with the Lafayette Diocesan Foundation, Inc. in memory of their parents dedication to Central Catholic. The minimum distribution for scholarship(s) will be $4,000. The student(s) must be a registered practicing parishioner of a Tippecanoe County Catholic Parish. Financial need may be considered, but is not the basis or foundation for this scholarship. The student and/or family should be a witness to service for the Lafayette Community and Catholic Church.
It is the hope of the Holzgrefe family that this scholarship will enable Catholic families to continue to provide a Catholic education as their children move on into the senior high school years. Please join me in a very special thank you to the Holzgrefe family for their generosity and commitment to Catholic education and for their years of service and dedication to our schools.
Information for scholarships like the Holzgrefe Scholarship are distributed to eligible families by the CC Guidance Office. Recipients for all of the scholarships for 2014-15 will be listed in the next Executive Director newsletter.
