Scholarship Fund Established for Students, Migrant Children to Attend Local Catholic schools

Earlier this summer, the Most Reverend Mark J. Seitz, D.D., Bishop of El Paso, announced the establishment of the Soñador Scholarship Fund, managed by the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso.

Bishop Seitz established the Soñador Scholarship Fund for Dreamers because he believes strongly in educating our children on the border and is committed to their success.

The fund was established with a gift of $20,000.

Officials with the Diocese say the Bishop, “By his example and leadership, fosters a deep appreciation for the diversity that immigrants bring to our cultural experience.”

“Catholic schools are founded on Gospel values. They are places where everyone is welcome, including the most disadvantaged members of our communities,” officials added.

“Catholic education is inclusive, tolerant, challenging academically, faith-filled, and holistic. Students are taught a sense of their own worth as individuals as well as a commitment to serving society.”

Those wishing to donate gifts supporting the Soñador Scholarship Fund will provide opportunities for deserving students and migrant children to attend El Paso’s Catholic schools.
