Scholarships for Catholic School Students
Step Up For Students is a state-approved nonprofit scholarship funding organization that helps administer two scholarships for Florida schoolchildren: the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program (FTC) for low-income families and the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) for children with certain special needs.
Our Catholic schools accept Step Up and Gardiner scholarships, which can be applied for through an online application. Applications are now open for both new and renewal families for the 2018-19 school year.
While they still give first priority to serving the lowest income bracket, Step Up hopes to award students of higher income families who qualify for the 88% scholarship.
If you have any questions about the Step Up scholarships or have interest in a Catholic education for your child, please call your local Catholic school and speak with its principal. Application link: https://www.stepupforstudents.org/logins/
