Who is Eligible for a Scholarship?

CTCEE funds students in grades K-8 with an annual $2,500 scholarship for approved applications.

All applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Electronic applications will become available on March 1, 2023, and remain online until all available scholarships have been distributed to applicants.

However, to be eligible, a parent or guardian applying for a scholarship may reside in any city/town in Connecticut. Students must live in the home of the applicant parent or guardian claiming the child on their 2022 Federal 1040 tax form.

Additionally, a household’s gross adjusted income must be at or within 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see in the chart below).

For further guidelines, see our Application Instructions page:

A parent or guardian may choose any accredited private or parochial school in Connecticut.

However, the chosen school must verify the student’s acceptance prior to final approval of the $2,500 scholarship.

Parents or guardians are responsible for the balance of the annual tuition charged by the school of their choice, and CTCEE will verify attendance and “good standing” of the student in September and January of each academic year. CTCEE will pay half of the $2,500 in September and January.

To continue receiving the scholarship, CTCEE families MUST re-apply to CTCEE each year. Renewal students and their siblings will receive first-priority scholarships.
