Funding Family Assistance Scholarships
The Morningstar Learning Center Tuition Assistance Scholarships receive funding from grants and fundraising. Historically, these scholarships have received grants from the Big Sky Resort Tax Area District and Spanish Peaks Community Foundation. Morningstar Learning Center (MLC) organizes one annual fundraiser where 100% of the proceeds go to this program. The amount of funding determines the amount of scholarships dispersed annually.
All applications are through a third-party company who specializes in evaluating family financials. The application and instructions for the process are provided with enrollment paperwork. All applications are confidential.
Scholarship amounts are awarded using a sliding scale that has been modified to accommodate our unique community needs. The sliding scale has been adjusted for the high cost of living, high rent, multiple children attending MLC, and number of enrollment days. The amount awarded may change based on amount of scholarship funding available.
