Scholarship for Musical Excellence

The Immaculata High School Music Department’s Scholarship for Musical Excellence is awarded to an incoming freshman who is committed to participating in Music department activities, including Marching Band. One $1,000.00 scholarship will be awarded.


The Michael Nunes Scholarship Award

The purpose of the Michael Frances Nunes Scholarship is to celebrate the life and indomitable spirit of our classmate. Born in 1968, Michael was a 1986 graduate of Immaculata High School who left us far too early at the age of 28. Michael’s energetic and gregarious nature thrived by extending random acts of kindness to many unsuspecting individuals. A tireless adventurer with a good heart, a great sense of humor, and an unforgettable smile, Mike was a friend who will be treasured for a lifetime. Through your application to the Michael Nunes Scholarship Award, the generous spirit of a dear high school friend will be echoed in the generations that follow us through IHS. The goal of the scholarship committee is to provide encouragement and financial support to a young person who is in need of financial assistance in order to continue attending IHS and is able to demonstrate a profound appreciation for the pillar of Friendship through their essay submission. The scholarship committee members will look for responses that are honest and insightful; show individuality and personality; and describe enthusiasm for positively impacting others.
