Additional Financial Assistance

In January, the application process for Illinois Tax Credit Scholarships for the 2021-2022 school year will begin. Families that meet the income requirements of the program are encouraged to apply at Empower Illinois and Big Shoulders. Current tax credit scholarship recipients and those who were placed on a waitlist for the current school year must reapply in January if they hope to receive a scholarship for the following year. There are no assurances that current scholarship recipients will receive another scholarship for the following school year. The sooner the time stamp reservation is obtained (at Empower Illinois) and the completed application is submitted (at Big Shoulders), the better the chances are that your student will receive a scholarship.
