The BASIC Fund is no longer accepting applications for the 2019-2020 School Year. If you are interested in applying for the 2020-2021 School Year, you can apply directly online starting the first week in January 2020.
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 2020-2021 School Year, you will receive instructions from the BASIC Fund in January 2020 on how to renew directly online. Please note, renewing families 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 application available.
Mid-April - Renewal deadline for renewing students.
