Cycle 1 of the Tuition Awards Program (TAP) offer a scholarship award for students in Grade 8 applying to a Catholic high school within the Archdiocese, applied toward fours year at a participating elementary school (yearly renewal and eligibility required) . Cycle 1 (2014-15) has been closed.
The CEF Programs office has processed TAP Applications for Cycle 3 (2013-14). Application decisions for round 1 of Cycle 3 were sent out the 3rd week of June. It was announced in late November that no awards will be granted for students on the Wait List this year due to a lack of donations/funding.
Cycle 2 is for the 2014-15 School Year and current 8th Grade Students who plan to attend a Catholic High School. Applications are available at the enrolling High School and must be completed and submitted to the High School of choice directly. Applications are no longer processed through the Elementary School. Please contact the High School for their deadline to submit.
Cycle 3 (2014-15) applications will be released January 29, 2014. Students who are current recipients or were wait listed will receive an application from the Finance Office. New interested parties are welcome and encouraged to pick-up an application. Details regarding deadlines will be provided with the application.
Decision letters of award status are sent directly from CEF. Assistance awards are at the sole discretion of the CEF Board and not Saint Mary School.
