Your child can attend a Catholic School

Financial Assistance Available

 

Tuition assistance scholarship grants from the endowment fund established as a result of

the Diocese of Peoria ROOTED IN FAITH Campaign and named in honor of Archbishop

Spalding, the first Bishop of Peoria, will be available for the 2020-2021 school year for

students enrolled in or intending to enroll in grades Kindergarten through 12 in any

Catholic school located in the Diocese of Peoria whose families are active members of a

Catholic parish in the diocese. All grants will be based on financial need objectively

assessed.

Information about the grants and application materials may be obtained from any

Catholic elementary or secondary school in the Diocese of Peoria or on the Diocesan

website www.cdop.org under Catholic Education and then under Financial Assistance.

Consult the detailed protocols and procedures and checklist for all requirements

necessary to be eligible for an award.

Parents must apply online at: online.factsmgt.com/aid. Families of students currently

receiving grants are reminded that all grants are for one year only, and anyone seeking to

renew a grant for the 2020-2021 school year must reapply.

Deadline date for the completed application is April 15, 2020. Notification of grant

awards will be made by the end of June 2020.

Another funding opportunity is also available due to the Invest in Kids Act legislation in

Illinois. Students may be eligible for up to 100% of tuition and fees under a new program

for tax credit scholarships (TCS). Details on how to apply and who qualifies are

available on the Empower Illinois website at www.empowerillinois.org. Students who

receive a TCS are ineligible to receive a Spalding award.
