St. Joseph's Prep Receives Additional $12 Million Gift from the Howley Foundation To Provide Scholarships to 60 Students

The Howley Foundation, led by founders Nick ’70 and Lorie Howley and Executive Director Meg Howley, have announced a $12 million gift to expand the successful Howley Scholars Program at St. Joseph’s Prep. The largest gift in school history, this donation will provide scholarships for 60 students across four classes each year.

Thanks to the Howley Foundation, these scholarships will create opportunities for academically talented young men whose families demonstrate financial need to attend the Prep. The recipients are selected through the Prep’s Admissions process.

This is a transformational opportunity for each of those young men and their families

President John Marinacci is extremely grateful for the donation and what it means for Prep students. “This gift is monumental,” he says. “There will be 60 Howley Scholars in the school every year. This is a transformational opportunity for each of those young men and their families, and on this scale, will create a positive impact within communities as well. We are grateful to Nick, Lorie, Meg, and the foundation for their support and proud to partner with them in changing lives.”

The name Nick Howley is well-known to the St. Joseph’s Prep Community. The state-of-the-art Learning Commons created through the For Others Forever Campaign, bears his name and many Prep students have already benefited from being part of the Howley Scholars Program.
