Back to School
– Back to Scholarships!
We had a conference call with school leaders this week to discuss scholarship funding for 2019-2020. This newsletter gives
you an overview of that call. If you have specific questions about your child’s
scholarship, please contact your school.
While we saw 127 students
matriculate out of the program, we reached a new milestone with more than 3,000
students applying for Exceptional SC scholarships this year – the most ever and
1,088 more than last year.
As we’ve done in every year of the
program, we will first fund all incumbents (at 50% of tuition up to $10,000). Students
who were newly funded last year with our 2018-2019 one-time scholarships — what
we term “new incumbents” — will be the next to be funded as soon as school verifications are
Next week, we will be sending out
our first round of incumbent scholarship checks to schools that have verified tuition
and student attendance in the order they were verified and completed.
