Elementary School Grant Program

The Columbus Citizens Foundation’s Elementary School Scholarship Program was established in 2003 at the directive of past Foundation President Lawrence Auriana and was implemented by former board member Richard J. Naclerio. The grants are available to students who will be entering grades K through 8. The grants, while generous, provide assistance towards tuition but will not cover payment for all school costs.

If you are interested in applying for a grant, please take a moment to learn about our requirements and the grant process.


  • Students who are of Italian descent (at least 25% Italian)
  • Students who show academic promise
  • Households where the total gross income does not exceed $20,000 per capita ($20,000 per person in the household) are eligible. For example, for a household of four, the maximum total gross income is $80,000 to be eligible.
  • Only students entering grades K through 8 are eligible to apply.
  • Students must be citizens of the United States or residents of same status. 


  1. To be considered for a CCF elementary scholarship, an online application and supporting documentation must be submitted by the deadlinethat contains detailed and confidential personal information. It must be submitted online to FACTS, an independent financial review company that will determine eligibility based on financial documentation.
  2. The CCF Elementary Scholarship Committee reviews and evaluates the applications.
  3. The Committee invites select applicants and their families to visit the Foundation for a mandatory interview (April/May).
  4. Approximately one month after all interviews have been held, the committee decides which applicants will be awarded scholarships. 
  5. Parents/Guardians/Applicants are notified by mail of the committee’s decision.

Recipients receive three-year grants, with the exception of when a recipient is entering 7th or 8th grade, in which the grant is then two years or one year in length, respectively. In the final year of a grant term, parents/guardians can re-apply to the Elementary School Scholarship Program to receive future scholarships. For example, if an incoming Kindergartener is awarded, parents/guardians would re-apply for a future scholarship when the recipient is in 2nd grade.

NOTE: CCF scholarships are partial scholarships and will not cover all tuition costs.
