Diocese Scholarship

It's that time again when the Diocese Scholarship Program for tuition assistance applications are available through TADS, our scholarship administrator. Just go to to complete the form. You may also go to our website's Admissions tab - and down to Diocese of Sioux City Scholarship Program - to find more information.
Sheila Cronin, the St. Mary's contact, said, "Please keep the following things in mind:
1. All information is kept confidential.
2. Monday, February 1 at 12 PM, application will be available online at  
3. Get your taxes completed early and apply early to allow time for notification of any missing materials. TADS will send you an email letting you know what information is needed, if any, so please check your email frequently until you get the notification that your application is complete. 

4. To qualify for a MLFT scholarship the student must be age 5 by September 15. Keep in mind that there are other Diocesan Scholarship Programs that are available such as The Bishop's Education Fund, Catholic School Foundation Scholarship and the Catherine Birzle Education Trust.
5. In case of split or divorce parents the tuition responsibility of each parent should be indicated on the application (example: 50-50 split). Tuition assistance awarded to one parent cannot be split between the parents. To be considered for a possible award each household must complete an application.
6. In circumstances where a parent is living with a significant other, that person's income information (form 1040) needs to be submitted as well. TADS requires this in order to determine need.
7. There is a $33 application fee that will be credited back to you on your tuition invoice for the 2021/2022 school year.
8. Application deadline is Friday, April 1, 2021.
If you don't have access to a computer or internet, I will be available to help you complete and upload your information to TADS. Please call or email me and I will gladly set up a day and time with you to help you with your application and to submit your documents. My information is below. All information is kept confidential. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. If any more information comes in on TADS from the Diocese, I will pass this along to you."
