New families can now apply through Step Up For Students for the income-based Florida Tax Credit Scholarship for the 2019-20 school year.
Please note that the priority processing deadline for Renewal families has passed meaning all applications are now processed on a first-come, first-served basis in the order all documents are received, regardless of family scholarship status. Please encourage your families to apply as soon as possible as funding is limited. Additionally, Florida Statute requires Step Up For Students to give priority to lower income families. If a new family’s income is found to be greater than 185% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, their student(s) will be placed on a waiting list.
• All applicants must have an active e-mail address to create an online application. If an applicant created an account in the past, the same email address should be used to apply for the 2019-20 school year.
• Parents can upload documents immediately to their online application. They can also submit required documents via fax.
• Schools MAY NOT ask for, or require, a parent to provide their username or password in order to access the student’s scholarship account.
This message does not apply to the Gardiner Scholarship Program for children with certain special needs or the Hope Scholarship for students who are bullied.
