The BASIC Fund is no longer accepting applications for the 2017-2018 School Year. If you are interested in applying for the 2018-2019 School Year, applications will be available here on our website the first week in January 2018.
Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis starting in January, until the Application DEADLINE of March 16th. Complete applications received after the deadline will be placed on a wait-list, and will be awarded as funds become available. If you have questions regarding applications please read the info below and look on our FAQ page.
If you are currently enrolled in our program and looking for information on renewing your scholarship for the 2018-2019 School Year, you will be receiving renewal paperwork from your school by the end of March 2018. Renewing families that are applying for a new sibling must complete a new application. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on a wait-list pending funding. There is no guarantee that students on the wait-list will receive a scholarship.
Congratulations on making a great choice in your child's education!
Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning each January. The earlier you apply the better your chances of receiving a scholarship! If funds are not available when we receive your completed application, we will keep your application on a wait-list. We will award periodically through the summer of 2018 if funds become available.
Participating families are required to contribute to their children’s education and are therefore responsible for costs not covered by BASIC Fund scholarship. The family must pay the remaining tuition balance which will be at least $500 for each school year, but may be more.
Scholarships are renewable annually through the 8th grade provided that the family keeps up their portion of the tuition payments, the family remains financially eligible, and the child remains enrolled in an accredited private school.
Starting in the 2018-2019 School Year, scholarships will be for a maximum of $2,000 annually per student.
Here are the general deadlines you need to know for your BASIC Fund scholarship:
January - New student application available.
March 16th - Deadline for new student application.
Mid-March - Renewal packages for returning students distributed via your school.
April 20th - Renewals due for all returning / renewing students.
