Tax Credit Scholarship Information

Dear Prospective School Families,

Through the “Invest in Kids Act,” Illinois children from low-income households who want to attend St Gabriel School will have access to new scholarships. The scholarships offered* through this program could cover up to 100 percent of tuition and eligible fees for next school year. Below is more information about how to apply and details on eligibility requirements. If you do not qualify for a tax credit scholarship based on your household income, the school will work with you on other potential scholarship opportunities.
*Scholarships may NOT exceed $12,973, the 2019/20 statewide average public school cost for K-12 students.


TAX CREDIT SCHOLARSHIPS


Students from low-income households in grades K-12 have the opportunity to receive tax credit scholarships for the 2018/19 school year. These scholarships are funded by donors who receive a credit on their Illinois state income tax as a result of their donation. Scholarships are distributed based on income level on a first come, first served basis so it is important to apply on time.


SCHOLARSHIP GRANTING ORGANIZATIONS (SGOs)


To apply for a tax credit scholarship, you will need to apply to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), a separate organization that is responsible for receiving and processing scholarship applications, and be distributing the scholarships to eligible students. There will likely be several SGOs in Illinois.


APPLICATION PROCESS


Since this is a new program, application details are being finalized, and the Archdiocese will share them as soon as they are available. Currently, the Archdiocese is working with the SGOs listed below. Please visit their websites for the most up to date information.

Remember, scholarships will be awarded based on income level on a first come, first serve basis, so it is very important to apply as soon as applications are open.


WHAT YOU NEED TO APPLY


Visit the sites listed above for the most current requirements. Based on what we know now, we believe families will need the following documents in order to apply for a tax credit scholarship:

  • 2016 tax return (other proof of income may be accepted; check individual SGO sites for exact requirements)

  • Proof of residency (i.e. driver’s license or state ID)

  • Birth certificate or passport for student

 

HELP APPLYING


You will be able to get help applying for the scholarship in-person at a variety of events in your community in the coming months. The Archdiocese will share the dates and locations of these events as these details are finalized. For families whose first language is not English, we will have in-person resources available to help you through the application process.
