2022 Scholarship Winners

The Dayton Catholic Women’s Club (DCWC) is pleased to announce the recipients of their DCWC 2022 Scholarship Awards, presented to local female Catholic high school graduating seniors, for use in their freshman year of college. The Scholarship winners were selected from among numerous applicants, giving consideration to academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, leadership, personal essays, financial need, and demonstrated Catholic faith.

This year's scholarship winners are:

  • Lauren Bergman, St. Michael's - Ohio State University
  • Sophia Dull, St. Charles Borromeo - Miami University
  • Cara Holthaus, St. Henry's - Miami University
  • Hannah Litke, St. Brigid - Duquesne University

  • Frances Park, St. Brigid - Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • Charlotte Ruble, Holy Angels - Bowling Green State University

In 2011, with the help of a legacy gift in remembrance of one of our past members, DCWC established the scholarship fund which allows the award of a minimum of four scholarships to female high school students who are continuing their education after graduation. Applicants must be graduating from high school and an active member of a Dayton area Roman Catholic Church.


Each year, the Dayton Catholic Women’s Club (DCWC) awards Charity Grants to worthy 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organizations throughout the Miami Valley area.

All Grant Applications are reviewed by the Grants Committee and approved by the DCWC Board Members. Grant Applications considered are focused on addressing worthy community needs within the Miami Valley area. The size and the number of Grant Awards are directly related to the amount of DCWC Grants funds available each year. Grant Awards in past years typically have ranged from $200 to $2000.
