Our Named Scholarships
St. Rita School for the Deaf has a tuition assistance and scholarship program for our students based on need.The family income of many of our students each year falls below the poverty level. This means very few can afford the full tuition cost.
The corpus of the named endowment scholarship funds are preserved and it is our hope that families and friends continue to add to the fund with future contributions to their loved one’s particular Scholarship Fund. The interest earned annually in each of these scholarship funds is used to assist those children who are in need of financial assistance.
The following families have made generous contributions to St. Rita School for the Deaf by establishing a named endowment scholarship fund in memory or in honor of a loved one. It is through these scholarship funds, our special events and other fundraising efforts that students in need have the opportunity to pursue the education, values and experiences so unique to St. Rita School regardless of their family’s financial ability.
We are grateful to these individuals, and their families and friends for contributions to the following specifically named scholarship funds.For it is through their generosity that these scholarship funds may grow and continue to provide for our students year after year…
