Knott Scholarships

The Knott Scholarship Funds were created through the generosity of Henry and Marion Knott. The Knott’s endowed Funds (The Marion Burk Knott Scholarship Fund and The Marion I. and Henry J. Knott Scholarship Fund) allow academically talented Catholic students who reside in parts of the Archdiocese of Baltimore to compete for scholarships to attend Catholic schools. The Knotts wanted the beneficiaries of these scholarships to use the gift of a Catholic education to give back to the Church and the community by sharing their talents in whatever forms possible.

Scholarships are for full tuition for Catholic elementary and secondary school.

Elementary scholarships are applied for in 4th grade, for use in grades 5 through 8.

Secondary scholarships are applied for in 8th grade, for use in grades 9 through 12.

University scholarships, both for full and partial tuition, are available from Notre Dame of Maryland University, Mount Saint Mary’s University, and Loyola University Maryland. 

Applications accepted from: January 24, 2024 to March 21, 2024
