College juniors, seniors and graduate students from rural areas in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa are invited to apply for the O’Brien Vrba Scholarship for the 2017-18 school year. Scholarship awards range from $2,000 to $3,000; awards for juniors and graduate students are renewable for a second year with sufficient grades and continued community service, subject to availability of scholarship funds.

Scholarships are not limited to Catholic applicants, but additional weight is given to applicants of the Catholic faith. The application deadline is April 15.
