Grade 9-12 Student Grants
- Financial Need: All grade 9-12 grade grants funded by the CEF will be awarded based upon the financial need of families, assessed by a third party firm for the high school to which the student applies. In turn, the high school will notify the family of their application status.
- Grant Eligibility: Unlike the grant eligibility for the K-8 grade students, at the high school level these grants can be used along with state-funded Parental Choice programs, such as EdChoice. The grants are awarded after state-funded assistance, family contribution, and high school and/or other institutional aid is applied.
- $1000 Limit: Grants will not exceed the amount of $1,000 per student.
- Annual Applications: These grants must be applied for annually, and will be awarded without distinguishing between families based upon religion; however, local schools could make such differentiations in awards of separate local tuition assistance.
Awarding grants for high school student follows this procedure:
- Families must first apply for Financial Assistance through their high school of choice.
- The level of need is assessed based on family income by a third-party firm
- Then any state tuition aid is applied for those who qualify for state program assistance.
- There will be a personalized level that families will be expected to contribute to their child’s education, so next that amount is deducted.
- There may be other school sponsored, need based aid or scholarship that the school can apply, and that amount is deducted.
- CEF Assistance will then be awarded, by remaining family need after these deductions, up to $1000 maximum
