Most Reverend Anthony Bosco VLCFF Scholarship Update

The Bosco VLCFF Scholarship is named for the Most Reverend Anthony Bosco, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Greensburg, PA, who passed away on July 3, 2013. Bishop Bosco was a staunch supporter of the VLCFF initiative. He was a much loved VLCFF Facilitator for almost ten years.   E-learners appreciated the clarity he offered them, for a deeper appreciation and love for Church teachings, along with the pastoral sensitivity he offered for enriching their journey of faith.   He truly was our VLCFF Bishop.

Each year a number of scholarships are made available for individuals who may be experiencing a financial need for participating in a VLCFF course, or certificate program.   The scholarship primarily supports the course registration fee, not the coverage of required texts. Preference is given to persons whose dioceses are VLCFF Diocesan Partners; however, others may apply.
