FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR SENDING YOUR CHILD TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL
There are many reasons that a single parent may want to send a child to a private school : religious preferance , safety , medical , special educational needs ( which can include the deplorable dumbing down of education in our country ). This organization helps pay for that option.
The Children’s Scholarship Fund Program
Founded in 1998, the Children's Scholarship Fund provides partial tuition assistance for low-income families to send their children to private schools. More than 86,000 children have benefited from scholarships across the United States as part of our mission to open the doors of educational opportunity to families. Currently, more than 25,000 children are using CSF scholarships. These children are attending private school due to the generosity of our donors, the efforts of 38 scholarship programs, and the sacrifices made by the families themselves, who pay—on average—50% of their children's tuition.
The response from families seeking the freedom to choose their children’s education was staggering. For our first scholarships in 1999, the parents of nearly 1.25 million eligible children from over 20,000 communities applied. Scholarship winners are selected in a random drawing.
Eligible families are required to demonstrate their financial need as measured by standards similar to the Federal school lunch program, which takes into account family size. The Fund focuses on elementary education because the earlier a child receives sound schooling, the better. Scholarships are awarded to all eligible children in a family to attend the school or schools of their choice.
The Children's Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for children grades Kindergarten - 8th. Children must be 5 years or older to receive scholarships.
For families with children younger than 5, information on Child Care resources and financial assistance can be found by calling Child Care Aware at 1-800-424-2246 (www.childcareaware.org).
