Msgr. George A. Carton College Seminarian Scholarship Fund

The Msgr. George A. Carton College Seminarian Scholarship Fund helps fund our college-level seminarians by providing money for their tuition, room and board. Our college seminarians must pay their own tuition, room and board, so those who cannot afford it and can’t find scholarships elsewhere can turn to the Msgr. Carton Fund to help cover those costs.

Seminarian Aid Fund

The Seminarian Aid Fund helps our seminarians in the event of an emergency. If a seminarian suffers a sickness or injury and needs medical help, or they need to travel home for a death or other family emergency, the Seminarian Aid Fund can help them out. It also helps needy seminarians pay for routine medical expenses that may not be covered by insurance, and can even be used to pay for more basic things like clothes, should the need arise. To donate to the Seminarian Aid Fund, click here.

St. Therese Fund

The St. Therese Fund is there to cover everything else. It pays for the tuition, room and board for theologians — those seminarians who have already graduated college (either a university or a college seminary). It also covers the salaries, office costs and marketing expenses that help keep our seminarian program afloat. To donate to the St. Therese Fund, click here.
