UPDATE: Invest In Kids Scholarship Applications
Temporarily SUSPENDED
This was posted to Empower Illinois' website yesterday regarding Invest In Illinois Scholarship applications. Please continue to monitor the website for updates:

The scholarship application will not be activated tonight. Please do not continue to try to access the site as it has been suspended. We do not yet have an update on when the student application will relaunch however we will provide advance notice. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused students and families.

We knew the demand for quality educational options was strong, but no one estimated the overwhelming statewide demand we saw today. Parents get one chance at a quality education and thousands took every opportunity to make sure their kids were first in line. More than 24,000 families visited the application site within the first few minutes of its availability causing a technology failure. We will continue to do our best to ensure fairness while maintaining compliance with the regulations imposed by the state.
