Sending your child to a Catholic elementary school is an investment in their future and education. However, tuition costs can be a challenge for many families. That is why we are excited to invite families in need to apply for financial aid through the Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation!
Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization within the Diocese of Rockville Centre that is dedicated to ensuring the excellence and continuance of Catholic schools on Long Island. By providing scholarship and program funding for the needs of students and schools, Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation helps make Catholic education accessible to all families!
Even if a child is not yet registered or enrolled in a school, families may still apply for aid from Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation. Families with a child in grades K-8 attending or wanting to attend a Catholic elementary school on Long Island, and in need of tuition assistance is eligible to apply.
The application process is open from late January throughout the summer, but awards are granted on a first-come, first-served basis to those applicants in need due to limited funding. To be considered in the first round of applicants, please apply by Sunday, April 30th.
Families should complete one application per household each year they need aid. Please note, there is a small processing fee for online applications ($40), and necessary tax documents (W2, tax-return, etc.) must be submitted to ensure the integrity of the application process.
After applying for scholarship assistance, processing will take between three and four weeks, and the first round of applicants will be notified in June. Awards are granted based on current economic circumstances and financial need.
If an award is granted, Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation will transfer the award money directly to the school, and the school will deduct the award amount from tuition. If a child transfers to a different Catholic elementary school within the Diocese of Rockville Centre, they will still be eligible for the award they were granted—THF awards are connected to the student, not the school.
To apply for aid, visit the Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation Scholarship Application page, where you will create a FACTS login and complete the application electronically.
Thank you for considering the benefits of Catholic education for your children!
