 Annual Need-Based Scholarships for Montgomery County Catholic Elementary Schools 


The Catholic Business Network of Montgomery County (CBN-MC) is proud to announce its scholarship program for students in need of financial assistance who are currently enrolled in, or will be enrolled in, a Montgomery County Catholic elementary school with an active CBN-MC membership for the fall of 2024. Thanks to the generous support of the John C. Grimberg Co., Inc., which donates $10,000 annually, along with contributions from supporters and Gala sponsors, this initiative aims to provide educational opportunities to deserving students. Principals of Catholic elementary schools in Montgomery County, Maryland, are invited to anonymously submit applications on behalf of eligible students. Principals will assess applicants based on provided criteria and submit a narrative statement supporting the students' qualifications and financial need. To respect the privacy and integrity of the student and family, no identifying information is necessary in the narrative. Applications should be mailed via regular U.S. mail to the specified address by Friday, February 16, 2024. Scholarships will be awarded to the school at CBN-MC's Annual Scholarship Breakfast, with funds directly applied to the student's tuition. Principals are encouraged to nominate students who meet the outlined criteria for consideration in this valuable opportunity.

The narrative must be sent via regular U.S. mail, and as instructed and to the address below, no later than Friday, February 16, 2024.

CBN-MC will award the scholarship(s) to the school, not the student/family, at its Annual Scholarship Breakfast. The school will apply the award to the student’s tuition. Principals are encouraged to apply on behalf of a student who meets the criteria below.
