Program Overview

The Independent Institute joins the successful efforts of numerous community initiatives around the country to offer children a competitive education alternative in the San Francisco East Bay.

The Independent Scholarship Fund (ISF) is a privately funded scholarship program of The Independent Institute that provides tuition assistance to low- and moderate-income families in Contra Costa and Alameda counties for K-12 private or parochial schools. The mission of ISF is to help families achieve freedom of choice in the education of their children.

Amount of Scholarship
ISF pays either $1,500 or three-fourths of a child’s annual tuition, whichever is less. In other words, if the annual tuition is less than $2,000, ISF will pay 75% of the cost. If tuition is more than $2,000, ISF will pay $1,500.

Use of the Scholarship
ISF funding can be applied toward the tuition of any private school of the family’s choice, so long as it is a California certified private school and is located within Contra Costa or Alameda counties.
