Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Scholarship

Cleveland Scholarship and Tutoring Program or EdChoice Program
Current VASJ students have the opportunity to be considered every year for scholarships awarded on Founders’ Day. Depending upon the scholarship, a student would complete an application or be nominated by a faculty member. Founders’ Day scholarships are funded by private donors, friends and alumnae/alumni and vary in amount.
VASJ accepts qualified students enrolled in the CSTP or EdChoice Program.
