Scholarships & Memorials
There are 3 general types of scholarships at St. Pius X: endowed scholarships, funded scholarships and the Memorial scholarship.
All St. Pius X scholarships are awarded based on need, and are awarded by the scholarship committee based on the nomination of St. Pius X faculty (for current SPX students) and elementary school personnel (for incoming freshmen).
Endowed scholarships are established with a minimum gift of $20,000 to St. Pius X. Named after the donor's designee, these endowed gifts are held in perpetuity while the interest on the corpus provides for student scholarships. Once the endowed scholarship has been established anyone may make contributions to the scholarship to further honor the scholarship's namesake.
Funded scholarships are funded by the various parent organizations at St. Pius X or other individuals. Little or no endowed funds are held by the school for these scholarships. Award monies are provided directly from the organizations or individuals that are responsible for these scholarships. Contributions may be made to funded scholarships in any amount by any individual at any time.
The Memorial Scholarship is a pool of funds endowed by gifts from various donors to memorialize a deceased individual. When a loved one passes away, families may ask that donations be made to the St. Pius X Memorial Fund in memory of the deceased. This endowed pool is held in perpetuity while the interest on the corpus provides for student scholarships. For any accumulated amount of $1,000 or more in the name of a memorialized individual, a nameplate is placed on the Memorial Scholarship plaque in the Young Center Lobby.
Current active Memorial Funds are: Harry McDevitt (father of Harry Jr. '79, Patrick '81, Sean '84, Julia '85, Heather '88, Shannon '89, and Brian '92, and grandfather of Alexis Tipton '07), Donald Sledge (grandfather of Kyle Sledge ’15 and Brett Sledge ’15), Peter Taylor (friend and supporter of St. Pius X), Don Hedges ’70, and Kevin Callahan ’76.
