Hear how appreciative senior Maggie Kohnen and freshman Ainsley Fairley are for receiving the opportunity to attend McGill-Toolen Catholic which would not have been possible without the St. Augustine Scholarship.
The St. Augustine Scholarship program was established in 2017 to ensure that deserving Catholic students will experience all that McGill-Toolen Catholic has to offer. To qualify for this scholarship, incoming freshman students must meet standards of academic achievements, be involved in community service and show a commitment to their Catholic faith as well as a financial need. Children of Catholic school teachers, children of first responders and active duty military, children of McT alumni and our Aquinas Scholars are eligible to receive assistance through the St. Augustine Scholarship Fund. Students who are recommended by their teacher for his or her exemplary effort and positive attitude, who do not meet the criteria for any of the above categories, are eligible to receive assistance.
Thanks to our St. Augustine Scholarships benefactors and proceeds from Dancing with the Stars, we raised $890,000 over the last 6 years. With those funds we were able to award 89, $2,500 scholarships to incoming freshman Catholic students.
Additionally, the St. Augustine Endowment Fund was established in 2018 to ensure the St. Augustine Scholarship will be awarded to future McT freshman for generations to come. The St. Augustine Endowment Fund continues to grow and is now over $500,000. Donors can now designate funds for the St. Augustine Scholarship Endowment Fund as well as the annual Scholarship effort.
