2013-14 Archbishop Karl J. Alter Scholarship winners announced
The Office of African American Catholic Ministries, on behalf of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, has announced the 2013-2014 Archbishop Karl J. Alter Scholarship Grant awards.
In 1964, Archbishop Karl J. Alter established the Archbishop Alter Scholarship — a four-year grant — to promote African American Catholic leadership among high school seniors who sought to pursue higher education. It is one of the ways the Archdiocese of Cincinnati assists in developing African American leaders who rise from their communities to affect change in our world. This year’s scholarship recipients have been awarded a four-year grant of $1000.00 per year.
