The Knights of Peter Claver and Ladies Auxiliary annually award scholarships to practicing Catholics, who are graduating from high school. They, or one of their parents, must be a Claver member. The National Scholarship Committee of the Knights of Peter Claver and the Ladies Auxiliary selects the two most highly-qualified students from the applications submitted.
These two top applications received the memorial scholarship in honor of Thomas R. Lee, Jr. These scholarship are in the amount of $2,000 for a period of two academic years – a total of $4,000. The recipient must maintain a “B” average in his or her freshman year of college to receive $2,000 for the second year.
Additional scholarships, named in honor of Willie Polk, Jr., are awarded on the State and District levels. These scholarships are a one-time amount of $1,000 per recipient for the freshman academic year. The number of Willie Polk, Jr. Memorial Scholarships for any given year is determined by the profits derived from the National Raffle of the preceding year. All scholarship awards are paid directly to the college or university WITH PROPER DOCUMENTATION.
