Immaculate Heart of Mary School

There are 2 funding opportunities for any family 
to make Catholic education affordable.


FEBRUARY 6, 2022!

1. Archdiocese of Cincinnati Tuition Assistance

One aspect of the One Faith , One Hope, One Love (1F1H1L) campaign started several years ago was to address the need of tuition assistance to families who otherwise might not be able to send their children to a Catholic school. These grants are for elementary school (K-8) and typically range from $250 to $1200 per qualified student.


***Please make sure to upload all supporting documents - 2020 tax return, 2020 W2's and 2021 W2's by the deadline of February 6, 2022.*** 



2. Immaculate Heart of Mary Tuition Assistance 

Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish provides tuition assistance to help parish day school families (K-8) attend the school.  Active parishioners may apply for assistance by completing an application.



NEW FOR 2022-2023!

The Catholic Education Fund (CEF) is happy to announce Welcome Tuition Scholarships for the 2022-2023 school year!  There will be 250, $1000 tuition scholarships available to incoming preschool and kindergarten students.   To be eligible, the student(s) must be the first child in their immediate family to attend a Catholic school. Each family must complete an application beginning on January 24th as well as the FACTS Grant and Aid application.  These scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.  More information on this program can be found as an attachment below.
The CEF would like to give back to the employees within our elementary schools who have given tirelessly over the past two years.  Therefore, CEF is making available a limited number of tuition scholarships for the children of the employees within our Catholic elementary schools (this can be ANY employee on the school’s payroll, working 35 hours or more).  Employees will apply for this tuition scholarships between January 24th-February 6th and a random lottery will award at least 250 applicants in mid-February for $1,000 tuition scholarships.  Employees will be notified regarding their award status shortly after.  The scholarship can be used at any K-12 Catholic school recognized by the Archdiocese.  More information on this program can be found as an attachment below.



You can apply for ALL of these tuition assistance options by completing ONE online application found at:


Simple steps to apply:

1. Choose "Create a user name and password" or if you already have an account, click "Sign In"

2. Then click on the Start Application link

3. Select the appropriate school year (2022-2023)

4. Complete the steps as prompted to apply for financial assistance

5. When asked during the application process if you are applying for an "award" answer YES. This will allow you to apply for the 1F1H1L grant.

*NOTE: All applicants must answer "YES" for award application as families must apply for this grant first before eligible for parish tuition assistance. 




FEBRUARY 6, 2022!



The application will be processed by a third party company which will apply designated criteria in order to rank eligibility and determine dollar amounts available for assistance. The application must be submitted each year by specified dates, and eligibility for these financial grants will be determined by April for the next academic year.  All parents registering for the next school year are expected to submit a tuition deposit during the February registration period, regardless of whether or not they are currently on financial assistance.  If a financial crisis occurs during the course of a school year, parents will have an opportunity to complete an application for financial assistance at that time.


If financial circumstances change, prayerfully consider repaying the parish for the assistance you have received.
