To whom it may concern, My daughter Ashley Baggs will be attending St. Joseph by the SEA in September I was wondering how I can go about her getting a scholarship. I was reading in the Staten Island Advance about this program called The "Children's Scholarship Partnership Regionalization Awards" is this available to her?
