Step Up For Students is a nonprofit organization that administers the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship for low-income students (K-12). Many families still don’t know the option exists, but Florida has the nation’s largest scholarship program giving low-income families the ability to choose the school that best meets their children’s needs.
Families who qualify for the free or reduced price lunch program may qualify for the Step Up For Students Scholarship also. Scholarships are based on income, not academic performance and are first-come, first served. Once a student’s eligibility is verified, the parent has the freedom to choose any one of more than 1,350 participating private schools across the state.
The scholarship also has special eligibility standards for foster and homeless children. Please visit www.StepUpForStudents.org for those requirements and additional details about the scholarship program.
