Does your organization provide financial assistance or scholarships?

Yes; we recognize that homeschooling families face financial hardship from various experiences, such as natural disaster, health issues, and job loss. HCF wants to reduce financial barriers from a family’s ability to homeschool. Apply for curriculum assistance or a CARE Grant.

The Mason Lerro Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually in March to homeschool families caring for a special needs child, with preference for families in the military. The deadline for application each year is December 16. Apply here.
