 Catholic high school scholarships

     The Council of Catholic Women of the Diocese of Joliet annually offers a number of scholarships to students planning to or already enrolled in a Catholic high school in the diocese.  Students eligible to apply for these scholarships must be registered in a parish with a local Council of Catholic Women, since it is these local councils which do the fund-raising.  To apply for one of these scholarships, students and their families must request the necessary forms from the President of that local CCW.  (If difficulty is encountered in contacting the President of the local CCW, the office of the JDCCW can help; call 815.221.6248; please note that this office is staffed only part-time by volunteers, so you may need to leave a message with your name and phone number for a return call.)

Background Information

     The Bishop Blanchette Scholarship Fund was established by the Joliet Diocesan Council of Catholic Women in 1982 to provide scholarships to allow students to attend Catholic high schools in the diocese.

     The BBSF Committee regularly plans fund-raising events such as an annual luncheon and get-together, and year-round provides Memorial and Celebration cards which give individuals, councils and others the opportunity to share joys and sorrows and at the same time contribute to this worthy cause.  They are assisted in this endeavor by a sub-committee known as Friends of the BBSF. 

"FRIENDS of the BISHOP BLANCHETTE SCHOLARSHIP FUND", invites you to become an active member of the Friends of BBSF.
