Apply for Financial Assistance at Catholic Schools
This year, the Office of Catholic Schools is excited to announce the availability of additional financial assistance through the newly established Scholarship Granted Organization (SGO): Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund. This new fund is in addition to the Diocese of Youngstown Foundation Tuition Assistance Fund, begun as the Mary Ellen Cushwa Wolsonovich Scholarship Fund in the year 2000. To apply for tuition assistance from either fund for the 2023-24 school year, families must use the FACTS tuition management system to complete the application at https://online.factsmgt.com/aid.
The application period is from December 1st through March 1st with the awards announced in early May.
As a result of legislation passed in 2021, Ohio taxpayers who wish to support Catholic education in Ohio now have the opportunity to receive an income tax credit by contributing to the Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund. Donations received by December 31, 2023 will be used to fund tuition assistance for the 2024-2025 school year. Please see our flyer and FAQs for details.
Donations to the Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund will be utilized to award scholarships to students attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Youngstown with a priority to support low-income families that seek high quality educational opportunities for their children.
