    Vocations

    Scholarships for seminarians has helped many young men over the years pursue their call to the priesthood.

    DONATE RSVP

    Founded by a parish priest, the Knights of Columbus has always worked hard to encourage young men to consider God’s call to service in the priesthood.

    The Knights of Columbus administers two scholarship programs for men in the first four years of theology studying for the Catholic priesthood. The Father McGivney Vocations Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, while the Bishop Daily Vocations Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit.

    An applicant with appropriate ecclesiastical approval, having been accepted at a major seminary, and studying for a diocese, an archdiocese or religious institute in the United States, its territories, or Canada, is eligible. Preference is given, although not exclusively, to applicants who are members of the Knights of Columbus or whose fathers are members.

    Each scholarship of $2,500 is for tuition, room and board. Once awarded, the scholarship is renewable each succeeding year up to a maximum of four years upon certification of continuing enrollment. The scholarship is not available during any year of pastoral internship.

    For questions regarding a donation, please contact us at 800-694-5713 Monday to Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EST, or email info@kofccharities.org.
