About Us

When children are empowered to reach their full potential, we start building a better future together.

  • Connecticut families seek out KSF’s assistance because they want a better life for their children. Parents understand the need for their children to attend the K-8 school that best meets the need and ability of their children.
  • KSF provides equal access to K-8 accredited private, parochial, religiously-affiliated, or non-residence public schools by awarding up to $2,100 each year. Parents are responsible for the remaining tuition.
  • Parents/guardians qualify if their income level is verified at or within 200% of the Federal Poverty Income level for the size of their family.
  • Residents of Connecticut may apply.

The Challenge

Kids' Scholarship Fund receives more than twice the number of qualified applicant than scholarships available.
