K 0f C


The Quincy Knights of Columbus Council 583 is proud to once again offer $500 tuition scholarships to two students from each of the four Quincy Catholic Elementary schools and Quincy Notre Dame for the 2022-2023 school year. The ten scholarships are for students in grades K-12. Winners will be drawn at a regular council meeting on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.

To qualify for a scholarship, the student

  • Must attend one of the Catholic elementary schools or Quincy Notre Dame during the 2022-2023 school year

  • Must be the child or grandchild of a current third-degree member

  • Must have their name submitted by a third-degree member by May 2, 2022

Each K of C Third-Degree member may fill out an entry form for each child or grandchild, but a family may win only one scholarship. Entry forms will be available at the K of C, and all entry forms are to be placed in the red scholarship can at the K of C no later than May 2, 2022

If you are a Catholic gentleman and interested in joining the Quincy Knights of Columbus, there are several opportunities between now and the drawing to become a third-degree knight and enter a child(ren) or grandchild(ren) in the drawing. Dates for joining online in about one hour are Sunday, March 20, at 1 pm, Sunday, April 3, at 1 pm, Tuesday, April 12, at 6 pm, Sunday, April 24, at 1 pm, and Wednesday, May 4, at 6 pm. The cost is $20 which pays the initiation fee and dues through December 31, 2022. Dues after that are $40 each year.
