Scholarship Granting Organizations

​Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) are non-profits that receive qualified contributions from individuals and businesses and then disburse these funds in the form of scholarships to eligible students to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois.

The application process for the 2022-2023 school year is closed. 

The application process for the 2023-2024 school year is open from Thursday, December 1, 2022, through Tuesday, January 17, 2023.

Remember: You must be approved by the Department to be an SGO before you can accept contributions or issue Certificates of Receipt (CORs) to contributors.
