Sisters of the Precious Blood Scholarship
The Congregation of the Sisters of the Precious Blood was founded in Switzerland in 1834 by Maria Anna Brunner, whose devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus, to Eucharistic adoration, and to meeting the needs of the poor of the area inspired a small group of women to embrace that charism. Ministering in the United States since 1844, and now based in Dayton, Ohio, the Sisters have served throughout the United States as well as Chile and Guatemala. The Sisters have served in a wide variety of ministries including, but not limited to, education at all levels, pastoral ministry, administration, domestic services, home and foreign missions, hospital chaplaincy, and retreat work. Many of the Sisters received their first degrees from the University of Dayton, and some have served as faculty members, especially in the areas of education, pastoral ministry and music.

Award applications for those preparing for ministry in the church. They are based on financial need and academic merit with additional consideration afforded to international students.
