The St. Augustine Scholarship Fund, established in 2017,  assists students who embody the values and ideals that we seek in our McGill-Toolen Catholic students, but whose families do not qualify for financial aid.  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.  To qualify for this scholarship, incoming freshman students must meet standards of academic achievement, be involved in community service and show a commitment to their Catholic faith as well as a financial need. 


Additionally, the St. Augustine Scholarship Endowment Fund was established in 2018 to ensure that the St. Augustine Scholarship will be awarded to future McT freshman for generations to come.  The goal is to seed the fund with $50,000, guaranteeing one scholarship each year for the future regardless of annual fundraising efforts.  These funds will not be distributed until the endowed fund has reached $50,000.  Now donors can designate funds for the St. Augustine Scholarship Endowment Fund as well as the annual effort.
