Apply for Financial Assistance

The schools in the Diocese of Stockton are blessed to have generous benefactors who understand the growing costs of educating a student and the impact these costs have on families. SEEDS – Growing Faith through Student Scholarships was founded with the sole purpose to help children from families of lower socio-economic backgrounds to have the opportunity of a Catholic education.

ELIGIBILITY: All families registered in one of our Catholic elementary schools are eligible to apply for a SEEDS Scholarship.

PROCESS: If a family is interested in applying for a scholarship, the application timeline is as follows.

  • Applications are accepted from December 1 through March 15 for the following school year.
  • A family is to complete the application process by March 15.
  • There is a $35 per family application fee, which is paid by the family.
  • An application is considered complete and eligible for consideration when all the required documentation has been filed and verified by March 15. Please note it can take up several weeks to verify information, so it is important to start well in advance of March 15.
