Scholarships Available for Blair County Junior and Senior College Students

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Welge Scholarship which assists Blair County students who are entering their junior or senior year (third or fourth year) at an accredited college or university. The Welge Scholarship was established in 1995 to honor Adelaide G. (Heverly) Welge who was a firm believer in higher education.

This summer, the Foundation intends to award three $500 scholarships. Applicants with demonstrated financial need must be members in good standing at a Roman Catholic Parish in Blair County excluding Saint Matthew Parish in Tyrone which has its own scholarship program.

Qualifying criteria and applications are available on the Foundation website’s “Grants” webpage at or at your Blair County parish office. Applications require the pastor’s signature before being submitted to the Foundation no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 15.
