The deadline for submitting applications for the Archbishop Karl J. Alter Scholarship is Wednesday, April 19, 2017. The Archbishop Alter Scholarship Fund was established in 1964 to promote African American Catholic leadership. Its purpose is to assist graduating senior high school students in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati who are African American and Catholic to attend a college or university. A scholarship recipient may choose to attend a parochial, private or public institution. The Archbishop Alter Scholarship is a four-year renewable grant (paid twice a year.) Scholarship candidates are urged to attend a four-year college/university. Scholarship candidates who choose to attend a two-year college or university will be considered. A scholarship candidate must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average in order to renew the scholarship.
