The Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana through the Gaudet Scholarship Program awards scholarships to advance the education of black African American students attending primary and secondary Episcopal schools within the Diocese of Louisiana.
Beginning this 2017-2018 school year we are going to try a new system of awarding block grants to the schools. This means that each school, rather than individual students, will apply for the funds. We believe the schools are much better equipped than are we to make appropriate decisions about how the funds will best serve the students. Gaudet Fund scholarships are intended to fill the gap between the school’s fullest financial-aid award and a family’s identified need.
- Frances Joseph Gaudet scholarships are to be used solely for the education of black African American youth attending primary and secondary Episcopal schools within the Diocese of Louisiana.
- Block grants will be awarded to each school. This means that each school, rather than individual students, will apply for the funds.
- Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year are due to the Gaudet Fund Committee not later than Friday, March 31, 2017. Applications have been mailed to each school. If you need additional assistance or a duplicate application, please contact Cassandra Reiger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Families interested in receiving funds from the Gaudet Scholarship should talk to their school’s admission officer.
