The NICF partners 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.
