The Melissa Villalpando Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Melissa Villalpando Memorial Scholarship Fund (MVMSF) was founded in 2009 by the family of Melissa Villalpando. Melissa unexpectedly passed away due to a pulmonary heart condition at the young age of 39. Melissa was especially dedicated to the success of catholic schools and served as a team member for ACTS retreats in San Antonio. Her dedication to catholic schools and her passion for volunteering is why we have chosen to continue this scholarship in her memory. MVMSF awards one deserving catholic high school junior an academic scholarship they can apply to their senior year tuition. Applicants must have a B average or higher and be an active member of their community, church, and school. Since 2009, MVMSF has taken great strides to expand the scholarship fund. We are now working with Hope for the Future, a tuition assistance program for Catholic/non-Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, and offering a $1000.00 scholarship open for all San Antonio catholic high school juniors to apply.

To apply for the $1000.00 scholarship open to ALL catholic high school juniors, Hope for the Future guidelines must be followed as well. Please visit the link http://www.hopeforfuture.org/assistance.html for further instruction on all requirements.
