Invest in Kids Scholarships:
Empower Illinois is excited to announce that applications for 2019-2020 tax credit scholarships will open on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 7 p.m. CT. The application will again be a two-step process. Part one will open on January 15 and will timestamp applications. While timestamps do matter, a student's place in line does not guarantee an award. All scholarships are subject to the availability of funds at the school of choice.
Schools and families will be notified when part two of the application is available. Families can complete part two on their family portal and are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible.
