tuition scholarships

ALL students enrolled in the elementary grades Kindergarten and above are eligible to receive AZ tax credit scholarships.  Awakening Seed School partners with Institute for Better Education.  Students wishing to apply for tuition scholarships need to apply each year through the website.  There are various types of awards available and are determined upon the completion of the application.

tax credit donations

Anyone who pays AZ taxes can contribute up to their state liability, at ZERO cost to the contributor.  If you typically get a refund, it will be larger.  If you typically have to pay, it will reduce your bill.  You have until April 15, 2023 to contribute and receive the dollar-for-dollar credit on your 2022 taxes!  Contribute before you file!
