  • The deadline for applications and 2015 tax returns (federal and state) to be submitted is January 15, 2017.
  • All complete applications submitted by January 15, 2017 will be given first priority for consideration for tuition assistance awards. If there are funds remaining, late and/or incomplete applications will be considered once all required documentation is received. Please note: Even if applications are submitted by the January 15, 2017 deadline if they are incomplete they will be considered late.
  • Academy of Our Lady of Peace school specific application questions must be answered. If the questions are not answered, the application will be considered incomplete.
  • Applications must be submitted with a complete 2015 tax package in order to be considered
  • A complete 2015 tax package includes: all W-2s and/or 1099s, K-1s if applicable, federal return, state return, and all schedules (ie. Schedule A, B, C, D, etc).
  • Taxes must be signed or documentation of e-file must be submitted with the taxes
  • Applications with any discrepancies between application information and submitted taxes will not be given priority consideration and will be considered incomplete.
