The goal of FACE is to assure that no child is denied the benefit from attending a Catholic school due to financial challenges. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to receive a quality Catholic education and that finances should never be the reason a student is not able to attend a Catholic school. FACE awards general scholarships as financial aid for K-8 students in the Diocese of Fall River Catholic Schools. Schools (and some parishes) may offer additional aid to help make Catholic education a reality for these students.
Hope & Opportunity Scholarship
Through a generous donation by The Carney Family, the Hope & Opportunity scholarship will provide low-income students with up to $2,000 to attend a Catholic elementary or middle school either in the Taunton, New Bedford, or Fall River area.
To qualify for a Hope and Opportunity scholarship, your family must be at or below the Title 1 poverty level as determined by the state and attend a Catholic school in the Taunton, Fall River, or New Bedford areas.

The Rev. David Costa Endowed Scholarship Fund
The Rev. David Costa Endowed Scholarship Fund at The Foundation to Advance Catholic Education (FACE) was established by a group of parishioners and friends to recognize and honor the outstanding contributions made by Fr. Costa during his 20 years of service to the North Attleboro community. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a student who is a North Attleboro resident and/or member of the Catholic Community of North Attleboro to attend St. Mary Sacred Heart School.
