The Cardinal Newman Society offers an Essay Scholarship Contest exclusively for high school seniors. By the end of June 2021, we will announce the winner of our 5th annual contest.
High school juniors who wish to enter the 6th annual Essay Scholarship Contest next year can sign up for Recruit Me online here.
The winner of the annual Contest is awarded $5,000 toward the cost of attending one of the institutions recommended in The Newman Guide. The scholarship is made possible thanks to the generosity of Joseph and Ann Guiffre, supporters of the Newman Society and faithful Catholic education.
Additionally, there is the opportunity for the winner of the Contest to be awarded $20,000 over the course of four years. Several of the Newman Guide colleges have agreed to supplement the Newman Society’s scholarship with additional $5,000 grants over three additional years.
