Scholarships and Sponsorships
One of the most impactful ways you can have a direct impact on a student's future is by contributing to or establishing a scholarship fund or sponsoring a student.
Scholarships and sponsorship are awarded to current students for their tuition at Bishop Fenwick as well as graduating seniors for college and university costs.
Benefactors are invited to participate in scholarship award ceremonies each spring and the Benefactor's Gathering in the fall to witness the direct impact scholarship and sponsorship donors have upon the Fenwick community.
Sponsor a Student Sponsorships are established by an individual, family, or corporate donor willing to contribute in a significant way to making a Bishop Fenwick education possible to a deserving student with recognized need during their high school career. Sponsorships are established at a minimum range of $3,000 to $5,000 annually for the duration of the student's time at Bishop Fenwick.
NAMED ENDOWED FUNDS:
These funds are established through major gifts ($25,000 and above) intended to establish a lasting legacy in honor or memory of an individual or family. A specific scholarship gift amount is determined and these funds are then given annually to support Bishop Fenwick High School students. The Director of Advancement works with the donor to establish scholarship criteria at the inception of the fund.
NAMED SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS:
These funds are established to honor or memorialize loved ones or valued members of the Bishop Fenwick community. In 1995, Bishop Fenwick set the standard for naming a scholarship fund at $10,000 in order to generate the sufficient funds necessary to perpetuate the legacy of an honored or memorialized individual. Revenues from these funds partially support a student qualifying for tuition assistance at Bishop Fenwick High School.
MEMORIAL AND HONOR FUNDS
These funds, generated through our honor and memorials program contribute to the general assistance available to students through the school’s financial aid program and may also be dedicated to a special project or program. Gifts of this nature are typically received as one time contributions to honor or memorialize individuals. Additionally, Bishop Fenwick High School also subsidizes this fund through its operating budget.
