The Aim Higher Foundation is pleased to announce that additional $1,000 tuition-assistance scholarships are now available for the 2023-24 school year. Families hoping to send their children to one of the 81 Catholic schools serving grades K-8 in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis are encouraged to apply. If awarded, the scholarships will help fund the cost of a child’s tuition for next school year. For this application period, beginning May 30, 2023, priority for the scholarships will be given to families who are new to Catholic schools.
Over the last 10 years, through the generosity of our donors and supporters, the Aim Higher Foundation has awarded more than 14,000 scholarships to students at every Catholic school serving grades K-8 in the Twin Cities metro area. These scholarships are need-based and follow the student each year through 8th grade. That is, once a scholar is awarded, they will receive $1,000 each school year as long as there is continued demonstrated need.
For the 2023-24 school year, the Aim Higher Foundation will be supporting 2,330 scholars—more than 12% of all K-8 students in the Archdiocese.
“This year marks the sixth year we have offered this additional round of summer funding,“ said Ricky Austin, President of the Aim Higher Foundation. “It’s a true privilege to be in the position where we can help create the possibility of a Catholic education for children from families desiring their transformational experience, but who have felt unable to access it due to cost.”
Families interested in applying for one of these additional $1,000 scholarships can do so by submitting an application at myTADS.com and checking the box to consider each of their children for an Aim Higher scholarship. More detailed instructions can be found HERE.
The application opens May 30, 2023 and scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis through August 11, 2023. If you have questions, please call 612-819-6711 and ask to speak to Director of Scholarship Programs, Laura Hester. You can email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to reviewing your applications!
