We are pleased to announce our Named Endowment Scholarships. Creating an endowed scholarship is one way you can assist students and leave a legacy at OLPH School. It is also a meaningful way to honor family, friends, or special people in your life.

  • Endowed scholarship funds are designed to be permanent and perpetual.

  • Gifts totaling a minimum amount of $25,000, can be contributed in full at the onset, or over a 5-year period.

  • Once established, the principal of the scholarship may be increased at any time.

  • OLPH School endowed scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need.
