Scholarship Funds

The Ladies of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College Scholarship was established in 1983 to support the education of local area female students who are pursuing their undergraduate education at the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College. In 2023, the organization established at scholarship at Holy Cross College.  

The scholarship is a vital part of the financial aid package offered to students selected each year by the Financial Aid Offices at the respective schools. For many years, member donations were augmented by annual fundraising events, but currently the sole source of scholarship revenue is member donations and Remembrance Card memorial gifts.

Each year, we have the pleasure of meeting the recipients at a special event in the spring, learning about their educational journey, and hearing their hopes and dreams for the future. The impact of your generosity is evident in their thank you letters. A recent recipient wrote:

“I am the first in my family to graduate from high school and my goal is to be the first to graduate from college as well. This scholarship is very important to me because without it, attending college would be very difficult…Thank you again for your generosity and helping my educational dreams come true!”
