The HALO Initiative partners with the Diocesan Education Endowment Trust, The Bishop’s-HALO Golf Tournament and other organizations to provide aid for nearly 1,000 students. Working together, we aim to help many more find a way to access the benefits of Catholic education.

Applying for aid through The HALO Initiative is simple and doesn’t require a separate application. Just complete FACTS Grant & Aid application for the Catholic School you plan to attend. When you apply for tuition assistance through FACTS, you’re applying for both tuition assistance from HALO and from your school.  Contact your Catholic school to learn more.



To be eligible for tuition assistance, an applicant must:


  • Complete an application through FACTS Grant & Aid (must re-apply annually).

  • Demonstrate financial need.

  • Meet the school’s entrance requirements.

  • Be current with all financial obligations due to any Catholic school within the diocese. 


Tuition assistance is awarded without regard for race, religion, gender, or ethnic origin.
