The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation introduced the Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow Kindergarten through 8th Grade Scholarship Program, which seeks to provide financial assistance to St. Louis City families who desire to offer their Kindergarten through 8th grade child(ren) a private or parochial elementary school education. Scholarship awards are based upon the financial need and the residency of the applicant. Scholarships awards follow students through the 8th grade assuming continued eligibility and are transferable to any private or parochial elementary school in the city of St. Louis.
Applications meeting income and eligibility requirements choose the parochial, private, or faith-based school of their choice regardless of their faith affiliation. The scholarship award is eligible for both new students and students currently attending a participating school, with preference given to new students.
