Do You Qualify For Free Tuition With Illinois’ New Scholarship Program?

Illinois’ new tax credit scholarship program could allow thousands of families in Chicago to attend private school for free, or for a significant discount – do you know if your family qualifies?

The table below shows what percentage scholarship your family may be eligible to receive based on your family size and taxable household income from the 2016 tax year (FPL = Federal Poverty Level.)

Keep in mind that eligibility is not a guarantee of acceptance, and that scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis based on both family income and where you live in Illinois.

You can find more information, including frequently asked questions, about the program on the Illinois Department of Revenue’s website.
