Bishop Cummins Scholarship Program
There are many families who want a Catholic, Lasallian, college-preparatory education for their sons but whose financial resources are severely limited.
To help ensure that this education remains accessible to all those who need it, all schools sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers in the western region are mandated to draw at least 5 percent of their students from families that have income at or below 185 percent of the federal poverty level.
The Bishop John S. Cummins Scholarship Program is our comprehensive program to ensure that students from diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds have the opportunity to experience educational excellence. The Cummins Scholarship Program provides full tuition, additional financial support for many incidentals, and a challenging and supportive learning environment. Bishop Cummins Scholars are offered the opportunity to succeed, and taught the skills and habits that make academic success possible.
By working with our generous community of donors and benefactors, we hope to ensure that the Bishop Cummins Scholarship Program remains strong and sustainable. Every dollar that is raised to fund the Bishop Cummins Program frees up other financial assistance dollars for families with lesser levels of need.
