Scholarships

process

All applicants must be registered students at Seton Catholic or must have begun the application process.  Everyone must complete a CEA application before April 15. You may also apply online at www.fairapp.com.

Applicants may also apply for specific scholarships available to Seton Catholic students. In order to be considered for these scholarships, please print and submit the Seton Scholarship Application. You will also need a letter of recommendation from someone who knows your family and your children. To make it easier for the person writing the letter, print and fill out a letter request. Make sure you give them at least 2 weeks notice before the scholarship deadline.

The financial needs of our families exceed our financial aid resources. Therefore, awards do not eliminate tuition payments for a family. There are very few exceptions to this rule, and recipients are usually in a very narrow category designated by the donor of the financial aid funds. Families can also earn cash toward their tuition by purchasing Scrip.

Families wishing to be considered for financial assistance based on need must complete the entire FAIR/CEA form online (and submit the requested documentation fee).

The school code for the online application is 700 and the password is cea700.  Once you enter the online application the Seton School code is 703. Very few scholarships are awarded to late applicants.

endowment

Applicants must file the FAIR/CEA application as well as the Seton Scholarship Application which is due June 30th. Scholarship recipients are notified as scholarships become available. Non-recipients are not notified. General Endowment Scholarships are available in addition to the listed scholarships. All scholarships are dependent on funding.

Catholic Community Foundation Christian Service Awards – Students must be in the 8th grade to apply. This program includes the generosity of many contributors who have established perpetual funds through the Catholic Community Foundation, whose mission is to help carry on the work of Christ by fostering philanthropy. Awards are available to all 8th grade students who attend either public or Catholic elementary school. The single criterion is service: Christ-centered behavior evidenced through voluntary service. Recipients are awarded $8,000 ($2,000 per year for 4 years) for tuition to a Catholic high school in the Diocese of Phoenix. In order for students to be eligible for a Christian Service Award, they must first be nominated. The Application and Nomination form is available at www.ccfphx.org. Students must be nominated by an adult who is aware of their service activity. Family members are not eligible to make nominations. Nominations must be postmarked by October 1. After receipt and approval of the Nomination, an invitation to apply will be mailed.
