Scholarship Program

Important:  The deadline for The Diocesan Scholarship Program application for 2018-2019 has passed (April 3, 2018). 
However, the online application will remain open to accommodate possible local school funding.


After careful review, we have hired a new financial aid administrator out of Minneapolis, MN named TADS. We are confident about the transition and believe they will provide us the necessary service we need at the Diocese of Sioux City for our administrators, parents and many others.
