When you apply for a scholarship, you must be prepared to carry out a set of responsibilities as a scholarship recipient. You’ll receive funding for your education and in return, the granting organization will expect you to fulfill certain criteria. While some scholarships are renewable, it’s even more important that you satisfy the requirements to keep receiving the award.

A private school like Mount Carmel High School has a limited amount of funds to offer.  It is vital that you secure yourself that financial aid and partner with us to ensure a quality education for your son.
Families with students in 7th and 8th grade should check with the organizations listed below for potential awards.  Many of these scholarship partners have fall deadlines in place, so it is important to plan and make inquiries early!
