Through the generosity of the Connelly Foundation, The Josephine C. Connelly Achievement Awards were presented to 139 eighth-grade students on May 13 and May 14, 2003. The presentations took place at two sites, West Catholic High School in West Philadelphia and Archbishop Ryan High School in Northeast Philadelphia.

Each recipient receives a yearly $1,000 tuition credit for each of the four years the student attends an Archdiocesan or Mercy Vocational High School. The awards are presented to students who strive to achieve their fullest academic potential. Every parochial elementary school in Philadelphia county is invited to participate. The number of recipients is determined by enrollment, and preference is given to students who demonstrate financial need.
