The Archdiocese of St. Louis offers several scholarships
for K-8 Catholic Education to both low income and middle income families. They do not offer scholarships for Pre-K or Junior Kindergarten. More information on specific scholarships is available through the Today & Tomorrow Educational Foundation. The application window is open annually in the January/February time frame. To make the process easier for families and schools, one application is now being used for all scholarships funded by the Catholic Education Office, the Today & Tomorrow Educational Foundation, and the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri. The Scholarship Office at TTEF will review your application and determine your family’s award(s) based on eligibility for the different programs. Individual students may not receive more than one scholarship if awarded, not including Catholic Families Tuition Assistance and Parish Employees Endowment Fund. These funds may be awarded in addition to the other scholarships awarded by the Archdiocese. There is a limited amount of funds available, so applying early is essential. Many eligible families are denied a grant simply because grant money is awarded to eligible families on a first come, first serve basis.
St. Joseph Parish also offers tuition assistance for families. In order to qualify for a St. Joseph Grant, a current Saint Joseph School family must apply for grants through the Archdiocese first. A current family must do this even if they applied previously to the Archdiocese and were denied a grant. If families do not fully apply/reapply for the Archdiocesan grants they will not be awarded a St. Joseph Grant. After you apply for the TTEF grants, you may apply through FACTS for a St. Joseph Grant. New families to Saint Joseph School must apply through the Archdiocese if they are enrolling while the application process is still open at the Archdiocese. If it is already closed, they may still apply for a St. Joseph Grant. All families apply for the St. Joseph Grant through FACTS. Like with Archdiocesan grants, there is a limited amount of grant money available, so applying early is beneficial to families.
