Catholic College Scholarship Program

Catholic University Scholarship program: Through its fund-raising efforts the Council presents scholarships each year to deserving high school seniors who will be attending a Catholic university or college.  The easiest way to help contribute to the scholarship program is through the Kroger Rewards Program.  There is no cost to enter the program and it does not effect other rewards programs such as Fuel Rewards.  To enroll for the first  time log in to Kroger’s website at  www.krogercommunityrewards.com, select COLUMBUS, OHIO and then select “enroll” or “re-enroll” and follow the instructions.  Our organization number is 80334.  Note that you must re-enroll annually to stay in the program.
