Tuition Resources

Foundation grants to pay for private middle school tuition.

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, a searchable database of grant makers that provide support directly to individual grant seekers, including students. (http://gtionline.foundationcenter.org/)

Another great source of information is at Foundation Center libraries and Cooperating Collections. If you use this database, start with a Types of Support search for “Precollege support”. (http://www.grantspace.org/Find-Us)
