Scholarships

In keeping with our dedication to education and service, the Nazareth Association established a scholarship program in 1994. This program was established in recognition of over a century of dedication to high quality education and service so generously designed and offered by the Sisters of St. Joseph.

The association has established several $2000 scholarships which are offered on a rotating basis and are renewable for one year, providing the student continues to meet the established criteria. In addition, a dedicated scholarship is available for a nursing student enrolled full time at any accredited program. A few of the scholarships are:

The Sr. Kevin Whelan Scholarship

The Sr. Rosemary Kenarny Scholarship

The Rotating Scholarship (annually honoring one of CSJ Nazareth Campus schools)

The Holahan Family Scholarship

The Mary Vocelle Family Scholarship

The Marian Vyverman Nursing Scholarship - separate application

 

 

 

Important update for Scholarship Awards:

Effective, beginning with the school year 2017-2018, awards will be for $2000.
