Generous benefactors have provided lasting gifts to Archbishop Curley High School through our Endowed Scholarships program. These scholarships, often named in memory or honor of loved ones, provide financial assistance to qualified students desiring a Curley education. These gifts represent invested funds. When the principal balance of each scholarship reaches $25,000, money is taken from the interest earned and provided to deserving students in the form of scholarship money.
These scholarships represent the generosity of dedicated benefactors. We honor those who provide these gifts and those for whom they are named.

The Timothy Brannan Memorial Scholarship
THE "SEMPER FI" SCHOLARSHIP
Very often when U.S. Marines take leave of one another or sign off on a message they say Semper Fi. It is an abbreviation of their motto Semper Fidelis which means “Always Faithful.” In memory of the many Marines who have remained “always faithful” to God, country, the Corps, and one another, this scholarship is established for those Catholic families who have been faithful to the Catholic Church. In addition to keeping the Ten Commandments, a faithful Catholic keeps the precepts or laws of the Church, namely:
• Attending Mass and resting from servile labor on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation;
• Confessing one’s sins at least once a year;
• Receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter Season;
• Observing the days of fast and abstinence established by the Church; and
• Helping to provide for the needs of the Church.
The scholarship process involves the completion of an application along with supporting documents from the Parish and the Pastor that evidence a commitment by the applicant and his family to living their Catholic faith. Essays from the parent and the student about the importance of living their Catholic faith including Mass attendance, going to confession, observing fast and abstinence days and involvement in parish organizations and activities are also included.
The scholarship award is made on an annual basis upon the application and the completion of tuition assistance forms. A student may receive this scholarship in any year of his education and it is renewable on an annual basis. A committee comprised of the donor and Archbishop Curley High School administration will determine the annual awards.
The Applicant is responsible for meeting the deadline of January 13, 2017 and having all related material submitted by that date.
