If you have not already done so, you should start with the school's financial aid or administrative office, as it may be able to connect you with resources specifically for students in private schools.
You might also ask if your state’s Department of Education provides vouchers or other financial assistance to attend private school.
Most foundation scholarships are for undergraduate or graduate students. However, a few foundations give grants to attend private elementary, middle or high school.
You can search for foundation grants with Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, our searchable database of grantmakers that provide support directly to individual grantseekers, including students. To search from your own computer, you can subscribe at our web site, or you can use it for free at Foundation Center libraries and Cooperating Collections. If you use this database, start with a Types of Support search for “Precollege support”.
To learn more now about getting foundation grants, take our free class, Finding Foundation Support for Your Education, available free as an online webinar or in-person class.
