Scholarships to Our Lady Star of the Sea School are provided by the Fulcrum Foundation and by Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish.  Applications for Fulcrum scholarships are available after Christmas and due in the School office by mid-January.  Fulcrum scholarships are based on family size, assets, number of children, and annual income.  Applicants need not belong to a specific parish or even to the Catholic Church to qualify.  A copy of the prior year’s income tax return must be submitted with each Fulcrum application.  Applicants qualifying for a Fulcrum scholarship are notified by mid April.

Star scholarships are awarded only to registered, active, and participating families who belong to Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish.  A family must first apply for a Fulcrum scholarship in order to be considered for a Star scholarship.  Applicants for Star scholarships must submit their letters to Father Lappe by June 1. Some families receive scholarships from both the Fulcrum Foundation and Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish.
