The Texas State Council will award at least one $1,000 Educational Grant per diocese and two more $1,000 Educational Grants to members of the Columbian Squires. The total number of grants for each Diocese will be determined using a formula based on the number of Knights in each Diocese. Applications for these grants are due March 1, 2019. Winners will be announced after the State Convention.
Note: These grants are from the Texas State Council; they are not related to the scholarships that Council 9368 will award in the Spring.
Who is Eligible?
An applicant must be a Knight of Columbus member in good standing of a council located in Texas, his wife, son or daughter. A granddaughter or grandson of a member in good standing in a council in Texas may apply if their father is not a Knight or is not in good standing. Descendants of deceased members or grandfathers who were in good standing are also eligible. Any graduating senior of a Catholic High School in Texas is eligible when sponsored by a local Council in Texas – even when the student’s parent or grandparent is not a Knight.
How to Apply
