For members of any age seeking to learn a trade, earn a certification or complete a college degree, Catholic United is here to help. Our Post-High School Tuition Scholarship program gives our members tuition assistance for their educational goals.
A scholarship award is a one-time member benefit. While the average scholarship recipient is a recent high school graduate, Catholic United members of any age pursuing a degree, diploma or certification can apply for a scholarship.
The first step to eligibility is to be a member of Catholic United Financial through the ownership of one of our financial products.
Many parents make their children members by insuring them with a Single Premium Youth Term Life insurance policy. See the Scholarship Guidelines below for details about eligibility.
The scholarship application period is open from March 1 to April 30 each year.
If you have not made a decision on which educational institution you will attend, put your first choice. This information will be verified after recipients are notified, and can be changed later.
If you have questions about the scholarship program itself, please call the Member Engagement department at 651-490-0170, or 800-568-6670 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions about your eligibility status, or you need assistance setting up your Member Portal account to access the online application during the application period (March 1-April 30), contact the Member Services department at 800-568-6670 or email email@example.com.
The application will ask you to indicate your level of involvement with your local Catholic United Council or Parish Volunteer Team. Volunteer involvement with your assigned Council or Parish Volunteer Team is not required in order to be considered for a scholarship.
Catholic United Financial Credit Union partners with Sallie Mae to offer college students and their families affordable student loan options and repayment plans. The Credit Union also offers Coverdell Education Savings Accounts which offer tax-deferred savings on qualified expenses.
