The Diocese of Erie provides approximately $3 million in tuition assistance for elementary and secondary schools. Individual schools also sponsor tuition assistance programs. For information on school-based tuition assistance, contact the school directly.
Your children may be eligible for two separate scholarship programs offered by the Diocese of Erie: The Bishop’s Tuition Assistance Program and the STAR Foundation. You only need to apply once to be eligible for both scholarship programs.
