GRACE Scholars

GRACE Scholars is a Georgia nonprofit corporation and tax exempt charity. GRACE is a Student Scholarship Organization where Georgia taxpayers can redirect part of their tax liability to GRACE and qualify for a 100% tax credit benefit created by the Georgia legislature.

GRACE was founded by Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta and Bishop J. Kevin Boland of Savannah in 2008 to take advantage of the SSO/tax credit legislation. The goal of GRACE Scholars is to afford qualifying families a quality education while providing donors with an opportunity to use their tax dollars towards Catholic school scholarships.

To be eligible for a GRACE award, a student must be a resident of the state of Georgia and demonstrate financial need. The student is either entering a Catholic school for the first time at the second grade or above from a Georgia public school OR a child eligible to enter first grade, kindergarten or an accredited pre-kindergarten program is eligible for GRACE.

The first step to apply for a scholarship is to have a completed application to St. Peter the Apostle School on file and then the financial need assessment must be completed. Please go to factstuitionaid.com and follow the instructions. No applications can be processed until these two steps are completed.
