The third edition of the Tour to France was particularly memorable also because, in addition to underlining the importance of the magnanimity of a society recovering from a very difficult global circumstance and which strives to help those in need realize their future, it has highlighted the cultural and international relevance of this tour by receiving the patronage of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture. Starting the “Good Samaritan” scholarship fund, is a small gesture for a great mission, that of evangelization.
With the awareness that every kilometer advanced would have been a concrete help from different donors, during and after the pandemic caused by COVID-19, for the students of the Pontifical Athenaeum the APRA team led by P. Clemens Gutberlet, LC., has demonstrated enthusiasm, emotion, courage, and spirituality for the entire 1,400 km route.
The scholarships are intended for students who would like to continue their studies at our Pontifical Athenaeum, however, due to the many economic difficulties they face, they cannot afford to continue their training at APRA. The scholarships awarded will be disbursed for an amount of up to 50% of the contribution due for academic fees but not for enrollment.
