The award is named for the late Marguerite Ritzinger, a Sigourney native, who left $388,770 to the diocese to help with scholarships for seminarians and students attending colleges or universities.

Applications must include an essay, copy of a high school or college transcript and two reference letters — all sent together along with the application form. Forms are available on the diocesan website at
