Our Lady of America Scholarship
Our school is blessed to have many scholarships available to help students attend Bishop Dwenger. The eligibility requirement for The Our Lady of America Scholarship is unique in that the only eligibility requirement ("only" makes it sound like this is a small thing, but that's not what you mean) is that the student is currently battling, or has previously battled survived, cancer. This scholarship was created by the Fean Family in honor of their son, Greg ’14, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia at five years old. His physicians, family, friends, and the intercession of Our Lady of America contributed to his healing. Through the prayers of his family and friends, intercession of Our Lady of America, and work of his physicians, Greg was completely healed of his cancer. Since cancer is a significant emotional and financial burden, this scholarship is in honor of his healing and open to those qualifying students. Eligible students should submit a short essay articulating how their cancer has impacted their life and include a letter from his/her oncologist. Applicants may email firstname.lastname@example.org name, class year, essay, and letter from oncologist. Any questions, please contact Mrs. Burns at 496-4706.
