Great Start COP

Indian River, MI 49749
The scholarship application period is now CLOSED for the 2020-2021 school year!
Due to Covid-19, the Great Start Collaborative's ability to award scholarships has been greatly decreased. Furthermore, we are awaiting to see what the fall school year will look like regarding in-person pre-school classes.
Because of this, we are encouraging anyone to enroll, however, as always, no scholarship is guaranteed. Furthermore, every family should have a "back up plan" in the event that scholarship funding is not awarded. Please read in detail this letter regarding scholarship applications.
Because the Great Start Collaborative understands the importance of a quality early education, we want to help ensure as many children as possible have an equal opportunity to attend preschool! With the assistance of community grants, we are able to offer families such as yours, financial assistance to send your child to preschool!
Scholarships are made possible with the generous donations from a wide variety of community organizations and private donors.
Families must meet eligibility guidelines such as:
· Income guidelines
· Age of child (child must be between the ages of 3-5
· Parents must participate in events of the Great Start Parent Coalition
Please download and print the scholarship application and the Family Agreement, and please include proof of income with the application that you return to us. Any incomplete applications or submitted applications without proof of income will be rejected. Because scholarship funds are limited, scholarships will be awarded according to need.
