There is no need to repay private scholarships or grants, but they will carry certain requirements. Scholarships are typically based on merit, while grants are most often need-based. Students should search and apply for scholarships at parishes, businesses, clubs, etc. in their local area as well as searching for scholarships online.
Searching for scholarships can be hard work, and a student may not receive all that he applies for. However, if a student is able to devote time to searching and writing essays, they may be able to reduce their loan burden coming out of school.
Prospective and current students can request a list of scholarships from the Financial Aid Office for their convenience. This is not an inclusive list and JP Catholic does not determine a student's eligibility for these scholarships.
