K11 Foundation Scholarship

K11 Foundation Background

The K11 Foundation is comprised of eleven Bishop Montgomery High School Class of 1980 alumni who graduated from several South Bay parish elementary schools: Our Lady of Guadalupe, Saint Anthony of Padua, St. Catherine Laboure, St. James, St. Lawrence Martyr, and St. Philomena. We arrived at BMHS as strangers, became classmates, best friends, and brothers. BMHS is the foundation of our brotherhood and the foundation of our success in a variety of fields, including Engineering, Finance, Graphic Arts, Information Technology, Journalism/Public Relations, and Military and Commercial Aviation. We recognize and appreciate how rare and fortunate it is for a large and diverse group of men to have continued to celebrate their brotherhood across many decades and throughout many personal and professional journeys.

K11 Mission Statement

To support through scholarships and mentorship the educational, professional, vocational and/or social development of deserving Bishop Montgomery High School students, particularly those who, during their time at BMHS, have developed and nurtured a passion to pursue a specific career path.
K11 Scholarship/Candidate Description

The K11 Foundation recognizes that any student who has earned acceptance to a four-year college or university has achieved success through their Bishop Montgomery High School experience and the advantages it offers to those willing to work hard and dream big. It is also the first step in a long and challenging journey that requires and deserves support and investment from the community the student will eventually serve.


The K11 Foundation also recognizes that the preponderance of scholarship support for these students gravitates toward those who have achieved the highest grade-point averages. Such support is well-deserved. However, a four-year college or university education is no less challenging for the many students at the other end of the GPA scale. This is why the K11 Foundation has resolved to focus its scholarship and mentorship support to the BMHS graduating senior who has attained acceptance to a four-year college or university with the lowest GPA.


As a group of individuals who have parlayed their BMHS and post-secondary experiences into a diverse array of successful careers and achievements, the K11 Foundation is also interested in students who can competently articulate through writing and, if desired by the applicant, visual medium what they hope to achieve professionally and for their community as a result of their four-year college or university education.
