Don't Forget These Important Deadlines!
Fulcrum Foundation Scholarships
Deadline: January 5, 2018
The Fulcrum Foundation has begun its 2018-2019 scholarship application process through FACTs online. All applications must be completed and submitted online by the January 5th deadline to ensure consideration.

We encourage every family to apply for tuition assistance as the Fulcrum Foundation is very generous to those who need financial support of any kind. Grants from Fulcrum Foundation help us to use local scholarship funds to support families who do not qualify for these funds or need additional assistance.
If your family will be in need of any tuition support next year, please take the time to apply. The FACTs online program ensures that your financial information is kept private and secure.
