NEW Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) program tuition assistance: Below is a link to information on funding for ACE tuition assistance through the US Department of Education. The program sets up an education savings account and puts in $1000 for each student to pay for afterschool activities, such as CSP lessons.

In some cases, a child needs to live in a school district that has a high rate of absenteeism, such as Cincinnati public schools. In other cases, families can apply if their income is below a certain amount.
For families applying this fall for a scholarship through our own CSP Scholarship Program, we ask that you apply for ACE Ohio funding as soon as possible in order that CSP scholarship funds, which are hard for volunteers to raise at this time, can go further.
Here is the link to the information and instructions on how to apply:
