  7. If you indicate that you have another child in college or other tuition charging school, provide tuition statement or contract (or proof of 3 most recent payments) of his/her enrollment.
Tuition assistance funds come from generous donors and school supporters throughout the year in the form of individual gifts and special events like the Annual Event, Poker Tournament, Tuition Credit Raffle, and other school initiatives. 

To be fair to all Scheck Hillel students, the Tuition Assistance Committee must be consistent and equitable in assessing each family's ability to pay tuition. Only completed applications will be reviewed.

So Scheck Hillel’s Tuition Assistance Committee may make the best assessment, please answer all questions accurately; feel free to describe any extenuating circumstances that will better enable the Committee to make a decision. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Betty Salinas, Director of Admissions at 305-931-2831 x173.

Thank you; we look forward to all that lies ahead together.
