Student Applications

Notice To Applicant

Parents and/or Guardians: Each application will be reviewed on a NEED basis and consideration of how many other children in your family attend Catholic Schools. No application will be reviewed without a full copy of a current 1040 Federal Income tax, including all schedules.

The deadline for the application and income tax has been extended until May 31, 2020 for the year 2020.

This scholarship fund is available for awards to students residing within the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, who apply to attend a Catholic elementary, middle or high school. The student applicant must be an active practitioner of the Roman Catholic faith. While the award of a scholarship shall be based significantly upon financial need, academic merit shall also be evaluated, taking into consideration the grade level of the applicant. These conditions are to be continually reviewed by the Trustee and an Advisory Committee.

An application form must be fully completed for each student applicant (i.e., If there are 3 children in a family who are applying, a fully completed application must be submitted for each child). All applications and income tax schedules must be uploaded to the school file, no later than May 31th.

A personal interview with the Trustee or Advisory Committee may be required. If such a conference is scheduled, you will be notified of the exact date, time, and location.

Scholarships are available in varied amounts to qualified applicants. Annual awards are not automatically renewable. Each year a new application must be completed and submitted. Determination of scholarship awards shall be in the sole and absolute discretion of the trustee in partnership with each school. Your school will then notify you of your award. If awarded a scholarship grant from this Trust, payments will be made directly to the school twice during the school year. One-half of the annual award will be paid in the fall, and the balance in the following spring.

The Trustee of the Mary C. Forbes Charitable Trust is D'Arcy R. Clarie, 1101 Pasadena Avenue South, Suite 3, South Pasadena, Florida 33707-2894.
