Scholarship

Scholarship processing

This year we will utilize the online service of ism’s Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all applications.

FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee who makes recommendations to the CCCS School Board based on next year’s budget. Upon approval by the CCCS School Board, financial aid offers are then sent to families.

  • Click on the “FAST” Logo.
  • Click ‘Start Application’ to begin.
  • The application process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program allowing you to partially complete an application and go back to it at another time. FAST has a 24/7/365 helpline available to you should you have any questions, which can be reached by calling 1-877-326-FAST (2378).
