Who is eligible for state tax-credit tuition scholarships?

Everyone, no matter their income. If you have a student in private school in Arizona, you are eligible for at least one type of scholarship. There are different scholarships to apply for based on each family’s circumstances. Click on the Resources section to download a cheat sheet of important facts and an STO comparison chart.

Are there any special deadlines I need to watch for?

If your child is in Kindergarten this year or transferring from a public school, NOW is the time to apply for what is called a “Switcher” scholarship. You must receive a “switcher” scholarship during your first year in private school to receive it for future years.

If you are looking to DIRECT your tax dollars, you must do so by April 15, 2018 to be able to take the Arizona tax credit off your 2017 taxes.

Do I have to re-apply every year?

You will need to fill out STO applications with each new school year. New scholarships are awarded with each new school year.

How do I know if I’ve received scholarships?

The STO awarding your funds will be able to tell you the total amount you received. You can also contact the Saint Thomas the Apostle Tuition Manager for this information.

Can I participate in Fund For All STA even if I don’t have kids in school?

YES! If you pay Arizona state taxes, you can tell Arizona to send ANY amount from $1 up to $1,092/single filer or $2,177/married couple to Saint Thomas the Apostle to fund tuition scholarships. We strive to fund all STA students, but prioritize needy students first.

Can my business direct tax dollars?

Absolutely! Contact Tuition Manager, Dawn Mulligan at for more info.
