CSFP provides four-year, needs-based, partial scholarships for up to three children in a family. Our scholarships change lives. 

Applications for 2,000 new scholarships starting in the 2019-2020 School Year are closed. Please check back in the fall for applications to the 2020-2021 School Year.

Important dates to note:

  • The CSFP application opens in mid-September of each year. 
  • The application remains open until March 1 of the following year. 
  • CSFP conducts a priority lottery in mid-November of each year. Winners for this early group will be notified in December. Any applications not selected in this initial lottery will automatically be entered into the final lottery. 
  • CSFP conducts a final lottery in early March, and winners are notified later that month.
