John J. Reilly Memorial Scholarship

The National Association of Catholic School Teachers established the John J. Reilly Memorial Scholarship to help defray the cost of a college education for outstanding children of NACST members. During their senior year of high school, $5,000 awards are made to three students, $1,250 in each of their four years of college study.

All sons, daughters and stepchildren of active NACST members are eligible to participate in this scholarship provided they are in good standing in their senior year of high school.

Each eligible student must submit his/her SAT or ACT scores and the NACST application by March 1 of his/her senior year in high school to his/her parent’s local NACST affiliate. The number of candidates submitted from each local is dependent upon the number of members in the local: one candidate from each affiliate with fewer than 100 members; two from each affiliate with 100-500 members; and three from each affiliate over 500 members. All candidates will be chosen by a Local Selection Committee appointed by the affiliate’s Executive Board.  Local winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship from COACE payable to their college.

The applications of all local winners will then be forwarded to the National Office for consideration in the national competition.

The primary emphasis in the selection process will be on academic performance.

All factors will be given appropriate consideration as follows:
