We are now only accepting new applications for the 2017-2018 School Year Waitlist
Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis starting in January, until the EXTENDED DEADLINE of JUNE 7th. Complete applications received after the deadline will be placed on a wait-list, and will be awarded if funds become available. If you have any questions regarding new applications please read the infomation below and look on our FAQ page. Please completely read through this page before you download the application at the bottom of the page.
Note: You must submit a complete 2017 application. If any part of it is incomplete The BASIC Fund will return your application in its entirety. The BASIC Fund does not keep copies of your incomplete application and/or documents.
If you are currently enrolled in our program and looking for information on renewing your scholarship you will be receiving renewal paperwork from your school by the end of March 2017. Please keep in mind that it takes the BASIC Fund all summer to process all renewing scholoarships. Renewing families that are applying for a new sibling must complete a new application by the extended June 7th deadline. 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 2017 if funds become available.
Participating families are required to contribute to their children’s education and are therefore responsible for tuition cost not covered by BASIC fund the 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.
Scholarships are up to a maximum of $1,600 annually per student.
