Madonna Foundation

Recommend a Scholar

Accepting Recommendations for the 2024-25 School Year

The Madonna Foundation is a non-profit scholarship organization sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago. The Foundation provides financial, spiritual and academic support to young women, instilling in them the resources necessary to grow and thrive, as well as the opportunity to succeed in a Catholic educational environment and beyond. 

The Foundation seeks students whose family demonstrates financial need and who would benefit from extra resources while attending a single-gender Catholic school. Scholars are given partial tuition scholarships to an all-girls Catholic High School in the Chicago area, as well as additional academic resources, college and career readiness programs, leadership workshops, service learning opportunities and spiritual retreats. 

The Madonna Foundation strives to instill the values of respect, dedication, stewardship and joy in each of our Scholars. Please use the below to recommend a scholar. Deadline is March 15, 2024. The information you provide will not be shared with the applicant. 

The scholarship application period has ended and will begin next year during the month of February.
