Connect with Families as a
Step Up For Students Vendor

Support Scholarship Students with Your Products and Services

The Family Empowerment Scholarship for Students with Unique Abilities (FES-UA) and the New Worlds Reading Scholarship Accounts empowers families to personalize the education of their students. Families can use this scholarship to pay for tutors, educational resources and tuition.

As a vendor, you can partner with Step Up For Students to support students and receive payment directly from us. Families that qualify for the FES-UA scholarship and New Worlds Reading Scholarship Accounts receive the funds through an education savings account (ESA). They can direct funds to providers through the MyScholarShop online portal to avoid out-of-pocket expenses.

As a vendor of educational products, you can partner with Step Up For Students to sell directly to our parents whose students benefit from the unique abilities or reading scholarships. We review all items offered by vendors to ensure they fit into one of the pre-approved categories for the student’s ESA.

Eligible products include materials, technology devices and curriculum.
