Scholarships for Graduating Seniors


Christ the King Church maintains two scholarship opportunities for high school seniors who are active members of the parish.

In 1989 parishioners Robert C. and Marguerite Graves established a perpetual trust to benefit the youth of our parish in the form of an annual scholarship. Over the past 32 years, earnings from the Graves Trust have provided financial assistance to deserving student parishioners who are continuing their studies beyond high school.

In 2018 another parishioner anonymously created the Paracelsus scholarship to support a graduating senior who intends to pursue a career in the natural sciences.


  • Applicant must be a registered and active participant of the Parish of Christ the King.

  • Applicant must be a graduating high school or technical school student who has been accepted for full-time admission at an accredited institution of higher learning.

  • For the Paracelsus Scholarship:  Applicant must be planning a course of study in the natural sciences(These include the life sciences such as botany, biology, and zoology, and the physical sciences such as physics, chemistry, geology, astronomy, and materials science.)

Scholarship(s) awarded in amounts determined by the administrator of the fund, and may vary based on investment performance of the funds and the number of recipients.
