SVDP Scholarship And Service Program
The St. Vincent de Paul Scholarship and Service Program identifies young people of high school age who display Christian leadership qualities and whose family income cannot support the cost of attending Catholic High School. Conferences are the first point of contact, identifying qualifying young persons in parishes. If the family is economically qualified, they will then be interviewed by the Conference to discuss things related to the young person’s involvement in parish life. Recommendations are also asked of the school currently attended. A Scholarship Committee interviews finalists and decisions are announced. For more information please contact Gerry Felsecker, Milwaukee Executive Director at: 414-462-SVDP/SVDP@execpc.com (Posted by Dennis Henry on 01/22/2004)
