Financial Aid Information
97% of Hoosier Families Qualify for Financial Aid. Does Yours?

Recent changes in the Choice Scholarship program have made 97% of Indiana families financially eligible for this significant scholarship. Also, new legislation has removed the red tape of the various “pathways” required to qualify. So, if you are an Indiana resident and your household income is under the limit, you qualify!

If you have already submitted your application and required information for your 2023-2024 scholarship, please pay attention to any email or phone call you receive from our office about next steps in the Choice Scholarship process. If you have NOT submitted your application for the 2023-2024 Choice Scholarship, and your household income qualifies based on this income table, please contact Kim Payne immediately at or 765-447-2727 to start this process.

The Choice Scholarship is a wonderful program for FCS families, but it does take significant effort from our office staff to help families apply. Your prompt attention and response is appreciated as the scholarship application window is closing soon.
