Every child deserves a chance to succeed.
Step Up For Students administers two scholarship programs for Florida schoolchildren as young as 3 years old.
For 15 years, low-income families have been benefiting from the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, which allows families with students in Kindergarten through 12th grade to direct funds towards tuition and fees at a private school or to transportation expenses to an out-of-district public school.
For students ages 3 to 22 with certain special needs, the Gardiner Scholarship program puts parents in the driver’s seat as they can use scholarship funds like a savings account. Scholarship funds can be spent on crucial needs such as therapies, assistive technological devices, and even towards tuition and fees at a private school of the parent’s choice.
Help us maximize the impact of the scholarships by crowdfunding.
