The Bintz Scholarship, created in 2001, supports Catholic education and makes awards to any Marion County student to attend the University of Dayton or another Catholic university.
The Bintz’s were a local Catholic family. Both Helen and Bob moved to Marion as children. They attended St. Mary School and graduated from St. Mary High School, as did their four daughters. Bob was a partner in Frank Brothers Department Store and, later, he and Helen owned and co-managed the Bintz Ladies Apparel Store until they retired.
Recipients of the Bintz Scholarship rank in the upper 25th percentile of their high school graduating class and/or maintain a college GPA of 3.0 or higher. They must have attended a high school located in Marion County for at least the 18 months preceeding their application.
