Thanks to the generosity of parishioners from throughout the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, more than 30 students from our parishes and Catholic high schools currently receive scholarships to Wheeling University (formerly Wheeling Jesuit University) through the Diocesan Scholarship Association (DSA). The DSA was established in 1961 by Reverend Daniel Kirwin and Archbishop Swint to encourage students from our diocese to attend Wheeling University. Since its inception, the DSA has assisted hundreds of students who chose to attend Wheeling University where they received an excellent education at West Virginia’s only Catholic institution of higher education.
