he Colleen and Erin Marlatt Scholarship Fund marks another successful year of helping worthy students and their families and is so pleased to honor the
ministry of teachers in the Archdiocese of Baltimore Catholic Schools. A Catholic education is a precious gift and in today’s economy a true sacrifice of love. A recurring theme of the essays students write for the scholarship application is the love and respect they have for their parents. “My mother is my role model or my dad is my hero,” are typical of the words they use to show their appreciation of the sacrifices their parents make to send them to Catholic Schools.

colleen & Erin Marlatt Scholarship Fund Mission The mission of The Colleen and Erin Marlatt Scholarship Fund is to recognize the significant contributions of teachers and administrators in Catholic Schools by supporting the education of their dependent children. In some cases, the Scholarship Fund provides up to 25% of the total of their high school education cost and almost 20% of the yearly tuition at the University of Maryland College Park.
