Need-Based Catholic Education Scholarships

St. Joseph Ypsilanti (SJY) is pleased to offer Catholic education need-based tuition assistance to our parishioners. The application period ended June 30, 2022. If you have need or questions about scholarship aid, please contact Margie Sauter.

Eligibility requirements are as follows:
1) member of the parish
2) active in the parish which consists of, minimally, attending Sunday Mass at SJY at least three times per month
3) exercising stewardship to the parish in a way commensurate with your abilities
4) asking for aid for a Catholic school or Homeschool Program; and 5) must have applied for aid at the Catholic school. 


Father Pieter and Bishop Boyea both strongly encourage families to seek a Catholic education for their children. Click here to find out more about the Catholic school opportunities in the Diocese of Lansing.

Our parish has set aside funds for these need-based scholarships, but we are also accepting donations. If you are able to donate to our Catholic Education Scholarship Fund, please donate today online (select ‘Catholic Education Scholarships’ on the pull down menu) or by writing ‘Scholarship Fund’ on the memo line of your check. We anticipate the need to be greater than the funds available. Your donation will lessen that gap. Thank you!
