The Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools Foundation is now accepting applications for the Fr. Augustus Tolton Scholarship. The Tolton Scholarship is a need-based full tuition scholarship that is awarded to one family from each of Quincy’s four Catholic parishes, Blessed Sacrament, St. Anthony, St. Francis, and St. Peter. Current QCES families, as well as those families whose children are actively participating in their respective Parish School of Religion (PSR) program, are eligible to apply for the Fr. Augustus Tolton Scholarship. The scholarship provides full tuition for each child in the family from each parish that is selected to receive the scholarship. The scholarship is renewable until all school-aged children in the family graduate from 8th grade, provided the family continues to meet all eligibility requirements. Scholarship applicants need to annually complete a scholarship application. As part of the Fr. Augustus Tolton Scholarship application process, applicants must also submit the Private School Aid Service (PSAS) application form by Thursday, March 31, 2016. Both the Fr. Augustus Tolton Scholarship Application Packet and the PSAS application form are available in the office of each of the four Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools, on each elementary school’s website, and on the QCES website, For more information about the Fr. Augustus Tolton Scholarship, please contact Paul R. Rittof, executive director of the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools Foundation, at 217-779-3157 or
