St. Monica Knights of Columbus Scholarship


The Knights of Columbus St. Monica Council 5656 has established a scholarship program to promote Catholic identity and community service in line with the Knights of Columbus’ principles of Faith, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.


The Council will award scholarships in the following categories:

  • St Monica School (Attend St. Monica School)

  • High School (Attend a Catholic High School in the Diocese of Dallas)

  • College (Attend a community college, technical or trade school, college or university in the United States)


For the 2018/19 academic years, the minimum award amount will be:

  • St. Monica - $500

  • High School - $500

  • College - $1,000

Each award is a one-time grant and previous award winners may apply in subsequent years.

Applications will be awarded points by the Scholarship Committee based on the student’s academic achievement, community service and activity in the St. Monica parish. Students with a relative in Council 5656 will receive priority. The top point earners in each scholarship category will receive the scholarship award. The number of awards per category will be based on the budget determined by the Scholarship Committee. The results of the Scholarship Committee are final and applications will not be returned to the applicant.


Applications for St. Monica School awards are closed.

The application deadline for High School and College awards has been extended. Applications must be received by Monday, May 21.
