Welcome to FACE
Founded in 1978, FACE provides financial needs-based tuition grants to students who attend Catholic schools in the Oakland Diocese without regard to an applicant's religion, gender, ethnicity or citizenship. The Diocese of Oakland includes 44 elementary and 9 secondary schools throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
FACE celebrates a history of supporting over 20,000 students in the last 35 years. Congratulations to the Class of 2012! Over 98% of 12th grade FACE recipients in the class of 2012 are going on to two and four-year colleges and universities.
FACE grants are made to qualified students attending the Diocese of Oakland's elementary and high schools based on financial need. This year 549 students will benefit from FACE assistance during 2012-13. FACE applications are distributed through the Schools in early January 2013 and are available on this website.
