Scholarships

They were going to do whatever it took to send me to a Catholic high school, the Christ Child Scholarship helped alleviate the burden for them to do so. It also set me on a path to be able to achieve my goals.

Members of the Christ Child Society of Columbus donate towards a Scholarship Fund that provides academic scholarships to Catholic High Schools in Columbus for students in 8th grade who could otherwise not afford to attend these schools. These scholarships are awarded to scholarship recipients at the annual Christ Child Society of Columbus Founder’s Day Luncheon each May. A Scholarship Committee reviews all applications and selects the recipients.

Please know that the support you give our kids changes lives. So many of the children who receive your money face so many challenges, and yet they come to school every day and perform at a high level. Thank you for rewarding and supporting that effort. Thank you for believing that Catholic education is important for everyone and not just those who can afford it.
