Step Up For Students

Dear Step Up Family,

Like you, we continue to monitor the latest news about COVID-19. The impact of this virus is unprecedented, not only on the public health of our country but on businesses everywhere.

At Step Up For Students, the health and safety of our employees is of utmost importance. We have been monitoring the situation closely and have taken the proper precautions to keep our employees safe and healthy while also focusing on the commitment to our families, students and schools.

Our service center, online chat, provider relations, reimbursement team and processing centers are up and running. We continue to accept scholarship applications for all programs: income-based (Florida Tax Credit or Family Empowerment Scholarship), Gardiner, Hope and Reading. Reimbursements also continue to be processed for Gardiner and Reading Scholarship programs. We are making every effort to ensure that your questions are answered quickly and that applications and reimbursements are processed with care and efficiency.

What if my child cannot go to school, will the scholarship amount be affected?
Step Up For Students is working with the Department of Education and will share information as soon as it is available.

Will there be any delays in processing my application?
We are fully operational at this point and we don’t anticipate any delays. However, we will continue to monitor the situation, so please continue to check your email and or here on Facebook for up-to-date information.

We understand this is a very difficult time for everyone. We are doing all we can to ensure our business is as uninterrupted as possible while also ensuring the utmost care for our employees, families and students.

If you have any questions, please feel to visit our chat agents at www.StepUpForStudents.org or contact us at 1-877-735-7837.

Gardiner families: NOW IS THE TIME TO RENEW!

📣 Parents, we have more great news! Step Up For Students is now accepting applications from renewal and new families for the Gardiner Scholarship for the 2020-21 school year.

Renewal students will have funding priority until June 30, 2020. If funding is not available at the time an award determination is made, the student may be placed on a waitlist. (A renewal student is one who has received Gardiner Scholarship funding for the 2019-20 school year.)

New students, including siblings being added to a renewal application or those currently on the 2019-20 Gardiner Scholarship waitlist, who are found eligible for a 2020-21 Gardiner Scholarship will be placed on a waitlist due to the requirement to provide renewal students priority. If funds are available after the renewal priority deadline (June 30, 2020) has passed, students may be released from the waitlist in this order: 1.) students who were on the 2019-20 Gardiner Scholarship waitlist and 2.) new students. (Families will be notified if a student is moved off the waitlist so please monitor your email.)

Applications will be processed in the order received. Within the above priority groups, students will be awarded based on the date and time eligibility was determined.

Please complete and submit your application as soon as possible. You will be notified if funding is available and your student is moved off the waitlist.

If you have questions, call us at 877-735-7837 or reach out to us via online chat on our website www.stepupforstudents.org.
