Our late pastor, Fr. Daniel J. Gilmartin, left as part of his estate funds for a college scholarship to be distributed according to the decisions of the Pastor of St. Brendan Parish, who is the trustee of the Fr. Gilmartin scholarship fund. The scholarship is worth $1,000, and it is given for one academic year. Hence, the conditions that I have set for the awarding of the 2016-2017 Father Daniel J. Gilmartin College Scholarship are as follows: 1) the recipient must be in a college program (or will be in the Fall); 2) the recipient must be known to the Pastor as one who lives a Catholic life of faith, worship, prayer, and service; 3) the recipient must give evidence of seeking academic excellence, providing evidence of this from the last two marking periods in school; and 4) the recipient must present a letter requesting the scholarship to me by June 15th. Whoever receives the Gilmartin Scholarship will not be eligible for the scholarships awarded from the Parish Scholarship Fund.
