…for Student Experiences & Educational Development
APESF is pleased to present a new grant program focused on helping low-income and at-risk families pay the private school fees above and beyond tuition. SEED Grants enable selected students to participate in all their private schools offer without the financial burden to the family. Funding for SEED Grants comes entirely from charitable gifts to our organization, not tax-credit revenue.
Fees Eligible for SEED Grants:
APESF sends all grants directly to private schools. Therefore, eligible fees are those for which the parent would ordinarily write a check to the school. These may (or may not) include:
Additional Learning Services

SEED Grant Distributions
SEED Grants are awarded once per semester in June and December. Notice of SEED Grant selection is sent in the same way notice of tuition scholarships is sent — via email on the last day of the month. Only families of selected students are emailed. All grants are one-time awards, not guaranteed for future years and not indicative of other tuition scholarships.
Can you direct us to potential funding sources?
In addition to utilizing charitable gifts, APESF also applies for local and national grants available to nonprofits. If you come across a relevant grant application, please send the link to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, if you know an individual or corporation that would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to APESF in support of this program, please contact us.
