Diocese of Jefferson City William H. (Bill) Simon Scholarship Fund
The William H. (Bill) Simon Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to Catholic students who are in financial need for the purpose of attending an accredited college or university of the student’s choice. The scholarship is $ 1,000 per semester to assist the student in meeting educational needs. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the institution or to the student upon presentation of receipts paid to the institution for tuition, fees, and/or room and board. It is the intent to award three new scholarships each year; however, the actual number of new awards will be contingent upon the current number of previous recipients that are eligible for renewal. The deadline for submission of the application, SAR, and letters of recommendation is March 31, 2020 (if sending via post, it must be postmarked by March 31, 2020). All applicants will be notified of the results by May 1, 2020. Please download the application form for more information and to apply.
