ROUTT TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS

  UPDATED JANUARY 2019

​  Routt Catholic High School is proud to say that we have several perpetual scholarships available to our students spanning all grade levels. Each scholarship was set up independently of one another and most have specific criteria that is considered when the scholarship is awarded every year. This criteria can range from academic interests, to citizenship, to participation in extra-curricular activities. Some scholarships are need-based and require that the family complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Management Assessment. Routt encourages ALL families to submit an application online to FACTS clicking here. Some scholarships  require the student to complete an application or write an essay. Some scholarships require all three. Please reference the word document above that is specific to the grade in which your child will be in for the next academic year, and below you can navigate to each specific scholarship to see what is required and what is considered when awarding that scholarship.

The FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment must be completed by APRIL 15, 2019 for your student(s) to be considered for need-based scholarships.
