Step Up For Students
What is the Step Up For Students Program?
It is an initiative of the Florida Tax Credit (FTC) Scholarship Program. The innovative program provides K-12 education scholarships for qualifying low-income students who are entering kindergarten or first grade or attended public school the previous year. The scholarships give low-income parents the opportunity to choose the K-12 school that best meets their children's needs. The scholarships cover up to $5,677 for private school tuition and books or up to $500 in transportation costs to an out-of-district public school.
