Catholic Charities C2 Opportunities Scholarships was established in 2018 and provides scholarships to low-income K-12 children across the Diocese of Birmingham through the Alabama income tax liability so that they can attend the public or private school of their choice.
At C-Squared Opportunities Scholarships (C2), our mission is to empower families to choose the school that best fits their child’s unique educational needs. C2 provides scholarships to low-income, K-12 children who are not succeeding in their current environment. Scholarships are funded by the donation of corporate and individual Alabama income tax liability.
C2 is a parent-driven model. Parents complete an online application the website. Scholarships are distributed on a first come, first served basis with priority given to students zoned to attend a “failing” public school.
C2 is leading the way statewide to provide low-income children the educational opportunities to be successful and to have a productive future.
