The mission of the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund is to help families afford a Catholic Education. Bishop Golka provides funds from the annual Diocesan appeal along with contributions for parishes across the Diocese.

All families who have a child or children registered, or are new applicants, in a Diocesan Catholic school and are in financial need of tuition assistance are encouraged to apply through FACTS online. Facts is the third-party agency used by diocesan schools to evaluate need. Once a family logs into their FACTS account, they will need to search and add their school (or schools) to the application. They can search by school name, city, state, or zip code.

The application will open on January 1, 2023 with a deadline for applications on April 15, 2023. The majority of the scholarship funds are awarded with the first deadline. The second deadline is June 30, 2023. Completed applications are evaluated by FACTS, and families with a demonstrated need will receive an award. Awardees’ families are notified through your school and scholarship distributions are made directly to the school on behalf of the successful scholarship applicant. If families are also awarded tuition assistance through outside agencies, this award total may be lowered so that all families make a financial contribution to their child’s education.
