Preschool Scholarships

The NICF is in the third year of a partnership with local preschools, schools and other organizations,to offer preschool scholarships for the children of Fulton, Miami and Starke Counties.

The goal of the program is to make one year of preschool education affordable to every child in our counties. Need-based scholarships are available to families of four-year-old children.

“I am always impressed by the quality of the scholarship applications we review. The next generation is certainly on their way to achieving great things.”
