Diocesan Tuition Assistance
What is diocesan tuition assistance?
Donors across the Diocese of Columbus have been generous in their gifts to tuition assistance funds. These funds are dispersed yearly to needy families through a distribution process that takes into account family need, total number of children applying for aid, and total amount of funds available that year. Families must apply each year for tuition assistance.
