SDCCW opens scholarship competition

The Springfield Diocesan Council of Catholic Women (SDCCW) is offering four $500 scholarships to recognize outstanding Catholic female high school seniors. Applicants will be judged on how they exemplify the SDCCW’s mission values of leadership, faith, and service.

Young women who are interested in applying for the scholarship should contact their high school principal, high school guidance office, or parish office for applications. The application, essay, and two letters of recommendations are required. The application deadline is March 30, 2021.

Scholarship winners will be notified by May 1 and honored at the Women of Distinction Banquet in June.

SDCCW is an affiliate of the National Council of Catholic Women and actively promotes the Catholic faith through service and leadership. The council is comprised of representatives from the deaneries of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. More scholarship information is available by contacting Mary Ann Sullivan at .
