Scholarship Information

  • Futures in Education is proud to administer the following three scholarship programs: Diocese of Brooklyn (DOB), Bishop's (BSP) and Be an Angel to a Student. We are also grateful to our partner, Children's Scholarship Fund, for matching 1:2 all donations received for the Bishop's Scholarship Program. It is our goal to ensure no child is denied a Catholic school education due to financial constraints. We encourage you to speak with the school administration about the payment options available to you. Please carefully read through all of the sections below to learn how you can apply.

    Who can apply for a scholarship?
    All families who have a child or children registered in a Catholic Elementary school in Brooklyn or Queens (Grades Pre K-8) and are in financial need of tuition assistance. Even if you have applied for and/or received an award in the past from any of our programs, you must fill out and submit a new application for the 2014-2015 school year.

    What is the deadline?
    Only completed applications submitted with all required supporting documents will be considered. The deadline for submitting an application is Tuesday, April 22, 2014. Completed applications received on or before this date will be considered for the maximum award amount. Completed applications received after this date will still be considered but will not be given priority for the 2014-2015 school year.
