All families with one or more children attending or applying for participating non-public schools are eligible to apply. For a list of schools in our programs, please click here. All scholarship programs have different guidelines and varied funding availability each year, so not all families who apply will be awarded.
Families may apply online for the upcoming school year beginning on the first day of the open application period. The 2017 open application period will begin on January 30th, 2017 and close on February 28th, 2017. All families who wish to be considered for Catholic Families Tuition Assistance (CFTA), the Parish Employees Endowment Fund (PEEF), and/or a new or requalifying Beyond Sunday or SOAR! scholarship must apply during the open application period.
Alive in Christ is first-come, first-served, so we encourage all families to apply as early as possible.
Families applying for requalification in Alive in Christ or Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow may apply after February 28th, 2017, but will not be considered for any other programs.
