The BASIC Fund is no longer accepting applications for the 2018-2019 School Year. If you are interested in applying for the 2019-2020 School Year, applications will be available here on our website the first week in January 2019.

Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis starting in January, until the application DEADLINE of mid-March has passed. Complete applications received after the deadline will be placed on a wait-list, and will be awarded periodically through the summer if funds become available. If you have any questions regarding our application, please look on our FAQ page or give us a call at (415) 986-5650.

If you are currently enrolled in our program and looking for information on renewing your scholarship for the 2019-2020 School Year, you will receive renewal paperwork from your current school by mid-March 2019. Please note, renewing families that are applying for a new sibling, must submit a new application by the mid-March deadline.

Congratulations on making a great choice in your child's education!

Participating families are required to contribute to their children’s education and are therefore responsible for costs not covered by 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 in the Bay Area.

Scholarships are for a maximum of $2,000 annually per student.


Here are the general deadlines you need to know for the BASIC Fund scholarship: 

January - New student application available. 

Mid-March - Deadline for new student application. 

Mid-March - Renewal packages for returning student’s distributed via your school.
