SCHAFFER SCHOLARSHIP

The Catholic Diocese of Toledo Employee Benefit Fund established this scholarship in memory of Mr. Edward Schaefer who served on the Board of Trustees of the Diocese’s Lay Retirement Plan for sixteen years. He was a catalyst in bringing about improvements in the Retirement Plan and other employee benefits in the diocese.
Competition for this scholarship extends over the 19 county area of the Catholic Diocese of Toledo and is awarded to three graduating seniors planning to attend college, who have a parent participating in the Lay Retirement Plan. The amount awarded to the top three applicants is $2,000 each.
The award was originally intended to award service and leadership – service first. It was Mr. Schaefer’s wish that the award go to a student who worked selflessly and achieved their potential but was not the outstanding student who receives numerous awards and scholarships.
The original committee members looked for the person who did volunteer work above and beyond any school requirements, perhaps one who worked on many committees.
The application states “service to church and community as well as leadership.”
The award is not to be based on need because there are other need scholarships. Academics are to be considered to determine whether the person can be successful in college.

All K of C Scholarship data may be found on the Ohio Knights of Columbus website at a new web address:   https://www.kofcohio.org/scholarships

The requirements that will be considered for this scholarship are financial need, Grade Point Average of 2.5 or higher, academic awards, community and/or parish involvement, and extracurricular activities.  Preference may be given to students who are sons or daughters of a Knight of Columbus member in good standing; or a son or daughter of a deceased member.  We have a particular desire to help students, who may be considering a religious vocation, stay in a Catholic High School to foster and encourage that calling.

No more than one scholarship per Catholic High School will be awarded.  A selection committee representing Ohio Charity Foundation, Inc. and the Knights of Columbus will make the final selection of the scholarship winners.  Applications must be completed by the STUDENT and mailed back to the address listed below, along with a current transcript of grades, by November 15, 2016.  Please make additional copies of the application.
