Title of Award: Knights of Columbus Student Loan Program Area, Field, or Subject: General studies/Field of study not specified Level of Education for which Award is Granted: Graduate, Professional, Undergraduate Number Awarded: Varies each year. Funds Available: The maximum loans are: first-year college students: $2,625 per academic year; second-year college students: $3,500 per academic year; third-year and fourth-year college students: $5,500 per academic year; graduate students: $8,500 per academic year. Funds are paid to the recipient's school. Any Federal Stafford Loans borrowed from other lenders or state guarantee agencies in addition to the Knights of Columbus loan may not exceed the federal maximums. The Stafford Loan program consists of both subsidized (for students with financial need) and unsubsidized loans (for students who do not qualify in whole or in part for a subsidized Stafford Loan). If the student qualifies for a subsidized loan, the government pays the interest that accrues on the loan during the time he or she is in school. If the loan is unsubsidized, the student is responsible for accrued interest. For a first-time borrower, the loan interest rate is variable and may change every July but will never exceed 9%. Duration: 1 year; may be renewed. All loans must be repaid within 10 years.

Eligibility Requirements: Applicants must be enrolled as at least a half-time student and must be a U.S. citizen or resident alien. They must be enrolled or accepted at a school that is recognized by the U.S. government under the Federal Stafford Loan program (this includes technical and vocational schools, community and junior colleges, colleges and universities, and major seminaries both within the United States and in other countries). Eligible students include members of the Knights of Columbus; wives and children of members; widows and children of deceased members; members of the Columbian Squires; and priests, brothers, sisters, seminarians, and postulants at the college, seminary, and postgraduate level (affiliation with the Knights of Columbus not required). Additional Information: The guarantee agency of the state of Connecticut—the Connecticut Student Loan Foundation—has agreed to insure loans for Knights of Columbus borrowers nationwide. All student loans are insured. This means that in the event of the death or disability of the student, the entire amount owed to the Knights of Columbus will be paid by the Connecticut Student Loan Foundation and will not be the liability of the borrower's family or estate.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
