Fr. Joseph N. Patterson Foundation Scholarship
The Father Joseph N. Patterson Foundation was established by Father Joseph to assist deserving young men and women attain their educational goals. Scholarships are distributed once each year. A Foundation committee reviews applications and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors for approval. Interviews with applicants may be required.
Christian Service Award
Recipients of the Christian Service Award display a love and understanding of their Catholic faith and articulate a commitment, not only to performing acts of service, but to living a service focused life.
In 2014 the Catholic Community Foundation, through its generous benefactors, awarded 32 Christian Service Awards, to deserving students, totaling $256,000. This is 28 more awards than were available when the program first began, thanks to individual, family and organization sponsorship.
Interest in the Awards has also grown for 2014. 124 eighth grade students completed applications for the $8,000, four-year Catholic high school tuition scholarships. Every student had the opportunity to interview with members of the Foundation's volunteer Christian Service Awards Committee. The Christian Service Awards committee took great care in reviewing the applications received, interviewing all of the applicants, and selecting the 32 recipients. There are currently fifteen students at Bourgade Catholic High School receiving this scholarship.
