Our 2021 College Scholarship Program!

Rules and Eligibility

The Needham Knights of Columbus Fr. Daniel Kennedy Council #1611 announces its scholarships program for 2021. The scholarships are available to any parishioner of St Joseph or St. Bartholomew parish, or other Catholic parish of registration by a Needham resident. Because scholarships were suspended for the 2020 -2021 academic year, four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded this year: two scholarships for students graduating from high school and enrolling in college in 2021, and two for students that graduated from high school in 2020 and are currently college Freshmen. 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 online at www.needhamkofc.org Applications must be submitted to The Fr. Daniel J. Kennedy Council #1611, 1211 Highland Ave, Needham, MA 02492 no later than May 8. The recipient will be decided upon in May and acknowledged at the Knights of Columbus meeting on June 2. 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.
