Job Description

Motivated by the belief in George Washington Carver’s quote, “What we give back to our communities, defines who we are,” Edward F. Flaherty, a successful entrepreneur, began the Flaherty Family Foundation in 1990 to be thoughtful and intentional about how he gave back. The product of Catholic education and the first in his family to graduate from college, Flaherty believes access to high quality, faith-based education provides a life changing opportunity to students/families. As a result, the Flaherty Family Foundation provides high school college prep scholarships to high achieving students with economic need. While the scholarship dollars help break down the barrier to access, the FFF works closely with partner high schools to break down additional barriers that may prohibit a student from reaching their God given potential. The FFF, is much more than a scholarship organization, we intimately know our students and families which allows us to celebrate their success with them and support them through their challenges.

The FFF currently has 280 Flaherty Scholars in 32 faith-based, college prep high schools located primarily in Minnesota, the DC area, and Baltimore. We are looking to bring on another 150+ Flaherty Scholars in the class of 2022.

At the Flaherty Family Foundation we believe, with the right opportunities, ALL students can reach their God given potential! 

We are currently seeking applicants for the position of Scholarship Facilitator. This full-time position is year round and will have responsibilities in Maryland, District of Columbia, and Virginia. 

In this role, you will conduct a full mentorship program for the Flaherty Scholars, which includes choosing appropriate students for the Scholarship, interfacing with all partner, and providing supports to all Flaherty Scholars in the designated states of responsibility. You will also provide a rich program of supervision and communication in accordance with the mission, philosophy, handbooks and implement the program utilizing the directions established by the Flaherty Foundation Executive Director.

You will be actively engaged in the scholarship application process: supervising the process, overseeing applicants and their information, choosing appropriate applicants for interviewing, facilitating the interview process, making recommendations for excellent candidates to become Flaherty Scholars. You will mentor, monitor, and encourage Flaherty Scholars individually and collectively in this rewarding position.
