After careful consideration, we at Children First Utah have made the very difficult decision to dissolve CFU and will no longer be able to provide scholarships to students. We regret to make this announcement and appreciate your understanding in this matter.
If you are still interested in scholarships for private school, we suggest you research the Children's Scholarship Fund (http://www.scholarshipfund.org/apply/). This national organization is well-established and may be able to provide scholarships for your students. You may also check with your private school about other scholarships that may be available.
It has been a privilege to assist in providing your students the opportunity to attend the Children's Christian School and be involved in her pursuit of education. I hope she will still be able to get an education she deserves and needs. Thank you for your understanding.
About Children First Utah
Some kids breeze through school, but many struggle in a system unable to respond to their needs and eventually drop out. Concerned parents are desperate to help them succeed in school. They know that without a high-quality education their children are headed for an unproductive life and continued poverty. The social consequences of their failure are immense.
Children First Utah is an innovative nonprofit organization that provided half-tuition scholarships to private schools for qualified low-income families who have nowhere else to turn. Our program expanded the educational options for families who needed alternatives to the public school system. Participating families made tremendous sacrifices to pay their half of their children’s educational costs.
