Scholarships and Tuition Assistance

Mater Dei is committed to ensuring that all students, regardless of financial resources, receive the opportunity to attend Mater Dei.  Thus, families are encouraged to apply for applicable scholarships and tuition assistance.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the designated qualification(s) – academic, leadership, financial need, grade level, and/or affiliation to a specific parish, school, or community.  Tuition assistance is awarded in various amounts based on financial need.

While families may review the opportunities for scholarships and tuition assistance, they may only obtain application forms at the time of registration, with the exception of the Invest in Kids Scholarships (Illinois Tax Credit Scholarships), for which families may apply prior to registration at  (Empower Illinois has not yet set the start date for the 2020-2021 application process.)
