STM Alumni Association Scholarships

Neary $150,000 in scholarships were awarded for the 2017-2018 Academic Year, totalling more than $1.4 million in awards since the program began in the 1980's. Many of the recipients were present at the Communion Breakfast in April.

Applications for the 2018-2019 school year are now available for downloading below, and are due for submission by December 31, 2017.

Awards now available to students outside of the Philadelphia Archdiocese

A few years ago, a new fund was started to parallel the legendary STMAA Archdiocesan Scholarship Fund. It is called the STMAA National Catholic Education Fund, and it is designed to help Catholic High School students who are not within the Philadelphia Archdiocese. Because the fund is still in its infancy, it was only able to make a few grants for the 2017-2018 academic year. With your help and support, thankfully, it is growing at a steady pace.

To be considered for an STMAA Scholarship Award, the nominee must...

  • Be related to or recommended by an STM Alumnus;
  • Plan on attending a Catholic High School for the 2018-2019 academic year;
  • Be active in school, sports, or church activities;
  • Have a good academic record;
  • Be involved in community service.

How to make a contribution to the STMAA Scholarship Funds:

Donations may be made payable to “STMAA” and mailed to P.O. Box 294, Drexel Hill, PA 19026. If you care to, you may specify that donations go to the Archdiocesan Fund, the National Fund, or the General Expense Fund. Donations that do not specify the category will be divided equally between the Archdiocesan and National Funds.

Your business can contribute, too.

Pennsylvania businesses may also make contributions under the EITC Program (Education Improvement Tax Credit) or the OSTC Program (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit). For details and forms for these plans, please contact Dan D’Urso, CPA at 610-517-7630 or, or John Millon, CPA at 610-721-9365 or
