Fr. Bader Scholarship

The Rev Michael J. Bader Memorial Scholarship Program is governed by Virginia State Council By-laws resolution 2021-10 that superseded resolution 94-03.  The program is supported by specified funds within the state council’s General Fund and, unlike the state’s KOVAR and VKCCI charities, it is not a separate 501(c)3 incorporated charity.  The Scholarship Fund relies exclusively on specified donations from KofC and other entities throughout the State. The governing resolution specifies the level of funds that must be available for awards to be made.


Donations may be made at any time during the Fraternal Year.  Donations must be sent directly to the State Secretary.  Donations can come from individuals or any KofC entity including Councils, Assemblies, Circles, Corporations, State Council, 4th Degree District, and Ladies of Virginia.
