Applying for a Tuition Scholarship
Awards made by ACSTO can only be used to pay for tuition for students currently enrolled in grades K-12 at a private Christian school (or at least planning to attend K-12 in the semester following the award process). If your child is not currently enrolled, or at least in the enrollment process, at the school named on your scholarship application, ACSTO cannot make an award.
You must also have a current and complete application in order to be considered for available scholarship awards. Click here to see our timeline–all applications expire at the end of April, regardless of when we received them.
