Tuition Aid and Bishop Scholarship Fund
The Diocese is committed to making a Catholic education accessible to all qualified students who demonstrate financial need.
The mission of the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund is to help families afford a Catholic Education. In this past year, the BSF awarded over $2,500,000 in aid to families at the Diocesan elementary schools in Fairfield County.
All families who have a child or children registered, or are new applicants, in a Diocesan-sponsored Catholic elementary school in Fairfield County (Grades K -8) and are in financial need of tuition assistance are encouraged to apply through FACTS online, www.FACTSmgt.com/aid. Consideration may be given to families with multiple elementary school-aged children.
Applications are evaluated and determinations made by the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund Committee. Awardees’ families are notified through FACTS and scholarship distributions are made directly to the school on behalf of the successful scholarship applicant.
Applications open February 1. The deadline to apply is March 15 for returning families and April 15 for new families.
Leaders of Tomorrow Program
Leaders of Tomorrow is a select program of the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund. Leaders of Tomorrow represent students from elementary schools across the Diocese of Bridgeport. They are students with a demonstrated need, who have applied to the Bishop Scholarship Fund and who have been identified by their principal as students of good academics, character and leadership potential.
Donors to Leaders of Tomorrow help subsidize the cost of a Catholic elementary school tuition for one or more students by providing for each child’s tuition up to $5,000 per year, half at $2,500 per year, or a quarter at $1,250 per year. As an investor in the education of a child, these special donors provide a life-enhancing gift and help transform the life of a student as well as their own through the gracious and selfless act of giving.
