Arete Scholars exists to help economically disadvantaged children reach their highest potential through educational opportunity. Through private contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, Arete awards need-based K-12 scholarships and empowers parents to place their children in schools that best suit their unique gifts and learning needs. Arete currently operates in Georgia under the state's Tuition Tax Credit Scholarship Program and in Louisiana under the Tuition Donation Rebate Program. Scholarship eligibility is based on the income guidelines for the federal free and reduced lunch program (FRL), and award amounts range from $2,500 to $5,000 per year. Recipients are required to re-qualify each year.
ACE Scholarships, founded in 2000, has awarded more than 23,000 scholarships, helping to send low-income families to their school of choice.
Ace Scholarship applications for the 2024-2025 school year will be accepted starting February 5th, 2024. The deadline for applications is April 15th. ACE will once again be using the FACTS Grant and Aid tool to accept and process applications from families. Consistency in the tool we are using from last year combined with work we did with the team at FACTS to streamline the application should make this year’s application process simpler for you and your families to navigate.

Louisiana Scholarship Program
The Louisiana Scholarship Program empowers low-income families to access the same opportunities that more affluent families already have by providing them with the financial resources to send their children to the schools of their choice. To be eligible for a scholarship, students must have a family income that does not exceed 250% of the federal poverty line and must either be entering kindergarten or be enrolled in a public school with a C, D, or F letter grade.
For the 2024-2025 school year, we are only accepting students entering kindergarten. 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th grade.
The application window for the 24-25 is Dec. 11, 2023-Jan. 19, 2024
