Introduced in the 2008-2009 school year, the Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow Kindergarten through 8th Grade Scholarship Program seeks to provide financial assistance to St. Louis City families who wish to offer their Kindergarten through 8th grade children a private or parochial elementary school education. Scholarship awards are based upon the financial need and the residency of the applicant. Scholarships awarded will follow students through the 8th grade assuming continued eligibility and are transferable to any private or parochial school in the city of St. Louis.
Applications of all income-eligible families living in the City of St. Louis with students attending eligible schools in the City will be considered, regardless of faith. Students that are new to the school and already attending the school will be considered in grades K-8.
