College Scholarship Program
Application Due by May 7th.
We're pleased to announce our scholarships program for 2022. The scholarships are available to any parishioner of Saint Joseph or Saint Bartholomew parish, or other Catholic parish of registration by a Needham resident graduating from high school and enrolling in college in 2022. There will be two $1,000 scholarships awarded. Scholarships will be awarded to students true to the founding principles of the Knights of Columbus: Charity, Unity and Fraternity.
Scholarship applications are available through the parish offices and by clicking the link below. Applications must be submitted to The Fr. Daniel J. Kennedy Council #1611, 1211 Highland Ave, Needham, MA 02492 no later than May 7, 2022. The recipient will be decided upon in May and acknowledged at the Knights of Columbus meeting on June 1, 2022. The Knights of Columbus Scholarship Committee will select the scholarship recipient. Decisions will be made based on a combination of the student’s accomplishments, essay, letter of recommendation, and application’s completeness. Financial need is not a consideration but the student is required to be enrolling in college.
