CATHOLIC EDUCATION FOUNDATION
TUITION ASSISTANCE FROM THE CATHOLIC EDUCATION FOUNDATION
The Diocesan Catholic Education Foundation will be awarding 300 need-based tuition assistance grants for the 2016-17 school year. The grants will be $500 per student. Students entering kindergarten through grade eight are eligible.
The deadline for applying to FACTS is March 1, 2017. You can apply online at www.factsmgt.com or by completing the paper application. Online applications are strongly encouraged. All supporting documentation must be sent to the FACTS Office by March 1. Questions on any portion of the application should be directed to the FACTS Office at 1-866-315-9262.
A frequent question that is asked is what income level is too high and cuts off tuition assistance. Income is just one factor considered -- other factors include housing costs, number of children, tuition costs, special circumstances, etc. We cannot give a specific dollar amount as to whether to apply or not.
Families will be notified in May of awards. Additional notification will be sent to the elementary school.
