OACCW accepting award applications
The Omaha Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women (OACCW) and its six deaneries are accepting scholarship applications from Catholic girls who are high school seniors and plan to attend a public or private college or university.
Each deanery generally awards a $250 scholarship, and winners are eligible to compete for an additional $500 scholarship.
Requirements and mailing addresses are available from high school guidance counselors, and the application form can be found on the OACCW Facebook page in the "Notes" section.
Applications must be postmarked by Jan. 15. Late applications will not be considered.
