Diocesan Financial Aid

The Diocese of San Jose offers tuition assistance to new and returning students (Grades 1-8) in financial need. Through the Diocesan Annual Appeal and parish collections, funds are disbursed to families at our diocesan schools. Catholic families who want to be considered for these funds must complete the FACTS application no later than February 12, 2018.

St. John Vianney School Scholarship Fund

  1. The purpose of this fund is to provide tuition assistance awards from the SJV School Scholarship Fund to students presently attending SJV.
  2. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need with FIRST CONSIDERATION being given to families who applied for the Diocesan Scholarship through FACTS, and are active members within the Diocese of San Jose, with priority given to active SJV parishioners.
  3. Scholarship monies are awarded for one year. If a family’s financial situation improves, it is expected that the principal will be notified, and the funds awarded will be returned and redistributed to another family in need.
  4. In order to apply for an SJV Scholarship, all financial and service commitments for the current year must be met, unless arrangements have been made in writing and approved by the principal.
