Schaller Raider Brigade Scholarship Application

There are three requirements for incoming 9th grade students to complete the application:

1. Student submits a completed Application for Enrollment to CDH.

2. Student enrolls in the JROTC Program.

3. Student submits a Scholarship Application and Essay (250 words or less) by February 1, 2019.

No application will be considered until all three of the above requirements are submitted to Cretin-Derham Hall.


Please upload a PDF file of your typed essay into the scholarship application. We recommend the essay is finalized before starting the scholarship application.

The essay must be 250 words or less and will be reviewed for content, clarity, and general 8th grade writing skill. By submitting this essay, you are promising that this is your own work. Feel free to have an adult review your final draft before you upload the file.

Your essay will answer this question: What are your goals for participating in JROTC at Cretin-Derham Hall?

Scholarship recipients will be notified in late February via mail.

If you have any questions, please contact LTC James Fischer.
