Father Augustus Tolton Scholarship Program

Respond to the call of leadership.

Rev. Augustus Tolton, America’s first Black Catholic priest, impressed his parishioners with his courage, kindness, and understanding. No less is required of us as leaders today. And we know, as Fr. Tolton did, that our growth in leadership won’t happen in isolation but in community.
Since 1990, Tolton Scholars have been enriching Chicago and the United States as chaplains, spiritual directors, pastoral / justice ministers, prison ministers, and educators. They are important voices in making the world and their communities more socially conscious and peaceful places.
Lend your own voice to this growing cause and community.
