Foundations in Education received a generous contribution from an anonymous donor to be designated as a COVID-19 Emergency Tuition Assistance Fund for elementary school families in need. It is our greatest hope to keep our St. Rose School family intact so we encourage those current families who are experiencing the negative impact of COVID-19 due to job loss and other financial hardships to apply for this assistance.
Here's how the process works:
- Eligible K-8 families submit the application (found below) to request for tuition assistance to the Principal. In addition, families must complete the FACTS Grant and Aid application (if they have not already done so) and answer all questions applicable to the COVID-19 Emergency Assistance. The tax documentation requirement will be waived for applicants to COVID-19 Emergency Tuition Assistance. However, you may be required to verify employment status, change in income status or demonstrated impact attributed to the pandemic.
- The Principal will make an appeal to the Bishop's Scholarship Fund committee on each family's behalf, in the order in which applications are received.
- The committee will make award determinations bi-weekly based on severity of hardship until funds are no longer available. The first application deadline is Tuesday July 23, 2020; the first round of funds will be distributed Friday July 31, 2020.
