Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

The Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program, made possible through the Invest in Kids Act, has provided scholarships for low-income and working class families since 2018. This program funds scholarships for children who choose to attend Illinois non-public schools, including Catholic schools. Scholarships offered through this program have the potential to cover up to 100 percent of tuition for a year at Diocese of Joliet Catholic schools.

Our partner scholarship granting organizations (Empower Illinois, Big Shoulders Fund and Children’s Tuition Fund) receive more than 2,000 applications each year from students who wish to enroll in our schools. For the 2022-23 school year, more than 835 scholarships were awarded to students with an average scholarship of more than $6,200.
