New Visions for Public Schools Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: May 16, 2024 3:00 pm CT

New Visions for Public Schools has established a scholarship program to assist dependent children of New Visions for Public Schools employees who plan to continue their education in college. Scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice for the upcoming school year.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Applicants must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be dependent* children, age 25 and under, of employees in good standing (i.e., not on active disciplinary action) of New Visions for Public Schools** who have a minimum of twelve (12) months continuous, full-time employment with the company in the immediately preceding twelve (12) months of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as biological, step-children or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or vocational-technical school for the entire 2024-25 academic year.

When completing the application, please enter the student dependent’s profile information.

**Dependent children of New Visions Charter High Schools employees are not eligible to apply.
