QPHS Scholarships

Thanks to the generous support of our alumni and benefactors, Queen of Peace High School is pleased to offer many scholarships opportunities to prospective students.  To be eligible for a scholarship, a prospective student must: (1) take the COOP Entrance Examination; (2) choose Queen of Peace High School as one of his/her choices on the Examination; and (3) apply for admission to QPHS.  The number of scholarships and amounts awarded are determined annually based on the fiscal budget and the number of eligible applicants.

Conveniently, these scholarship opportunities do not require separate application.  Instead, prospective students are considered for these scholarships during the admissions process when they apply to the school for admission.  Scholarship recipients are then notified of their award, if any, in their acceptance packet.  All scholarship recipients are expected to maintain an exemplary discipline record while attending QPHS and the terms and conditions of each scholarship are more fully set forth in the notification in the acceptance packet.  Any student who fails to adhere to this criteria may forfeit his/her scholarship.

The scholarship opportunities listed below are administered by organizations that are independent from QPHS.  All eligible students are encouraged to apply.

QPHS Alumni Association Scholarships

The QPHS Alumni Association, an independent non-profit organization consisting of former students and graduates of Queen of Peace High School, also provides scholarships to students entering Queen of Peace High School.  Administered independently from QPHS, these scholarships have specific eligibility criteria and require a separate, electronic application process.  The deadline for the general QPHS Alumni Association Scholarship is January 7, 2017.
