|Tuition Assistance for Catholic School Students|
Tuition Assistance from the Catholic Education Foundation
The Diocesan Catholic Education Foundation will be awarding scholarship grants worth a minimum of $500 to elementary school families for the 2013-14 school year. Students entering kindergarten through grade eight are eligible for assistance.
The deadline for applying to FACTS is March 1, 2013. You should apply online at www.factstutitionaid.com. Please be aware that all supporting documentation must be sent to the FACTS Office by March 1, 2013. Questions on any portion of the application should be directed to the FACTS Office at 1-866-315-9262.
A frequent question that is asked is what income level is too high and cuts off tuition assistance. Income is just one factor considered - other factors include housing costs, number of children, other tuition costs, special circumstances, etc. We cannot give a specific dollar amount as to whether to apply or not.
Families who were granted awards last year must re-apply. Families will be notified in May of awards. Additional notification will be sent to the school. There is a $30 fee for the application.
During the current school year, the Catholic Education Foundation has provided $7.000 in tuition assistance to I.C.S. families. It should note that this scholarship is not related to the Jim Feeney Memorial Scholarship or any other tuition assistance provided by I.C.S. Families planning to apply for a scholarship provided by I.C.S. should also apply for this. Please contact the school office if you need more information.
