Hope for the Future provides need-based tuition assistance for Catholic and non-Catholic students who meet eligibility requirements and enroll in one of the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. Tuition assistance is prioritized by financial need and based on available funding.
Hope for the Future recognizes that poverty has no boundaries and will work with families seeking assistance. The money is paid directly to the school on behalf of the student, half of the award each semester. Hope for the Future raises tuition assistance monies for students attending elementary and secondary Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
Hope for the Future's tuition assistance selection committee will review and process the applications for approval. Once a family is approved, the family will be notified by the selection committee via email and may present it to the school of their choice at the time of registration.
