Empower Illinois scholarships are funded through Illinois tax credit donations that are designated to St. Matthew School.  Before applying for parish or diocesan tuition assistance, families need to first apply for Empower.  Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis so apply as soon as possible!

Applications open January 15 at 6:30 pm.   Go to empowerillinois.org/students to apply.  Contact Stephanie Goebel in the school office with questions.
