K-12 Tuition Assistance

The Learning Lamp is an Opportunity Scholarship Organization and a Scholarship Organization in the state of Pennsylvania.  What does that mean? It means that we are able to receive tax credit donations from businesses in the state, and use those donations to fund tuition assistance to families in our area.

These are not full scholarships, but will help your family to afford non-public school.  Award amounts depend on the number of donations we receive each year. Funding must be applied for each year and is not guaranteed from year to year (in other words, we may be able to help you one year but not the next, so please also look for alternate funding sources).

ELIGIBILITY

Students who live within a low-achieving school district, as determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, are eligible to receive a scholarship if their household’s annual income is no greater than $76,350 plus $15,270 for each dependent member of the household. More information can be found on the state website here.

Tuition assistance awards will be made until the funds are gone. All awardees will be asked to complete ten (10) hours of volunteer service to The Learning Lamp during the school year. 

APPLICATION PROCESS 

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year. Please check back in June 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year applications. Awards will be made in late August/early September and are based on eligibility and the amount of funding we receive.
