Applying for a FIAT scholarship is a simple process. There is a required financial aid application, which will need to be completed at online.factSmgt.com and can be accessed on fiatcatholicschool.com via the "Apply" page.
Yes, there is a $32 fee per family. This $32 fee allows you to apply for both the Blessing our Future and Bishop Flores Scholars scholarships if you wish to apply for both.
All of the funds raised for the Blessing Our Future campaign are through our partner parishes in the South Bay region. It is through the generosity of these parishes and parishioners that we are able to offer quality Catholic education to the children of San Diego’s South Bay region.
Every family wishing to receive a Blessing our Future scholarship must be a registered parishioner of one of the partnering 11 parishes in the San Diego South Bay Region, and their child or children must be in grades K-12.
Scholarship awards can be used to pay tuition at any K-12 Catholic school in the Diocese of San Diego.
The eleven South Bay Parishes participating are:
Corpus Christi (Bonita)
Mater Dei (Chula Vista)
Most Precious Blood (Chula Vista)
Our Lady of Guadalupe (Chula Vista)
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (San Ysidro)
St. Anthony (National City)
St. Charles (South San Diego/Imperial Beach)
St. Mary (National City)
St. Michael (San Diego/Paradise Hills area)
St. Pius X (Chula Vista)
St. Rose of Lima (Chula Vista)
The scholarships are determined based on need. There are limited funds available, so if you are interested in participating, we encourage you to turn in your application as soon as possible.
The application period runs from January 2 to February 28, 2019.
The scholarships will fund the following 2016/2017 school year and will be paid directly to the school in the name of the recipient.
