Ace Montana awards more than 1,000 scholarships for private school tuition

The nonprofit ACE Scholarships Montana has given out more than 1,000 scholarships this year, 300 more than last year, to students from low-income families around the state to help them afford private school tuition. 

“Parents are looking for different school options for a variety of reasons,” said Jake Penwell, vice president of ACE Scholarships Montana. “Many working-class families cannot afford to move if their children are struggling in the school they are zoned to attend. They also are not able to pay full tuition at their local independent school. That is what makes the scholarships ACE offers such a vital resource. Families that come to ACE Scholarships are determined to make the necessary sacrifice to help their child get the education they deserve and provide them the foundation for success.”

The program provides scholarships of up to $2,000 from private fundraising and fundraising under the Montana Tax Credits for Qualified Education Contributions Program.
