FAQS

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

Our scholarship application for the 2022-2023 school year opens September 14 at 7pm. At that time, you can click the green “apply now” button at the top of your screen.

Important dates to note:

  • The CSFP application opens in mid-September. 
  • The application remains open until March 1 of the following year. 
  • CSFP conducts a priority lottery in December. Any applications not selected in this initial lottery will automatically be entered into a second lottery in March. To increase your chances of being selected, apply before the November 15 priority deadline for consideration in both lotteries.
  • CSFP conducts a final lottery in early March, and winners are notified later that month. 
  • Winners in both lotteries will be notified via email with next steps for registration.
