Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

We at St. Petronille are so pleased to offer scholarships through the IL tax credit scholarship program (Empower).

The Empower Illinois scholarship registration date for the 2022-2023 school year is now open. The OPEN registration date started Wednesday, January 18, 2023 at 6:30pm.

As you know, Empower Illinois awards scholarships based on need and a first-come, first-served basis. This is why it is imperative that you register right at 6:30pm to receive priority listing on the waitlist for St. Petronille.

Registration is a two-step process. The first step will be to complete a brief online form with your name and contact information, your child’s name and preferred school on Wednesday, January 13 at 6:30 p.m. You will then click submit at 7:00 p.m. This will time stamp your application and reserve your place in line. 

Step two: After reserving your place in line, families will be emailed a unique link to complete the formal application. Once families receive their unique link, they will be able to access Part Two in their empowerXchange portal. Part two is when you will upload household and income documents, and complete the full application. After receiving the application email, families will have about a week to complete the application and submit all required documents.
