How to Apply- Open

Applying for a CSFB Scholarship

Join our waiting list for the 2020-2021 school year.

Scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year have been awarded.

The wait list for school year 2020-2021 is open now until October 2019.

Congratulations on making a great choice in your child’s education.

If you receive a CSFB Scholarship:

      • Choose the school which best suits your needs (or use the school finder) and ask them about their procedure to enroll CSFB students.
      •  If you aren’t sure which school you’d like to apply to, the school is not set up to enroll students onsite, please contact us for more information.

IF YOU ARE SELECTED, you will be notified by mail to come in for an intake meeting in the month of April, to fill out a program application. Applications are then processed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in April each year. The earlier you apply the better your chances of receiving a scholarship! If funds are not available when we receive your completed application, we will keep your name on the waiting list.

Participating families are required to contribute to their children’s education and are therefore responsible for costs not covered by the scholarship. Each family agrees to pay a minimum of $500 per school year towards their children’s tuition.

Grants are renewable annually provided that the family keeps up their portion of the tuition payments, the family remains financially eligible, and the child remains enrolled in private school in Kindergarten through eighth grade.

The maximum award we provide per student per school year is $2,000.
