A full tuition scholarship has been established at Brandeis University in the name of the Catholic Youth Organization, it was announced today by Abram L. Sachar, president of the University. The scholarship was established by Bishop Bernard Sheil of Chicago, founder of the organization in Chicago in 1931. The CYO offers church supervised leisure time programs for Catholic youth, and its four-point program includes religious, cultural, social and recreational activities.
