Ace Scholarships – Applications Accepted Feb 5 to Apr 15

My name is MacKenzie Murray, and I am the new Director of Private Scholarship Programs at ACE! Some of you may already know me, as I was previously the Scholarship Programs Coordinator. Moving forward, I will be your primary contact here at ACE. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or concerns! 

Applications will be opening next Monday, February 5th and remain open through Monday, April 15th (Tax Day). Please remind returning awarded students as well as potential new students of application opening. Flyers with important information including eligibility requirements can be found in our Help Center here and it is attached to this email.  As a reminder, the ACE application is now a separate application from your school’s Grant & Aid FACTS application (if your school is contracted with FACTS); however, there will still only be one application fee for families. Here is a link to your state’s application: Mississippi Application.

All current partner schools will be included on the application in FACTS even if the programs team has not had a chance to confirm receipt of your school’s School Partnership Agreement. Please ensure that your school has BOTH updated your school information as well as agreed to the Terms and Conditions. Information is required in all mandatory fields before hitting the orange update button after the ACH information. Next, agree to the Terms and Conditions, then hit the second orange update button.  

As a final reminder, our updated help center contains valuable information for both schools and families to assist navigating the application process. Helpful articles for both you and your families are linked here:

Important Notes:

  • Please remember applications must be complete and submitted for all current awarded scholars to remain on scholarship, and all new applicants must submit a complete application with all required taxable and nontaxable documentation to be considered for an award. We only accept applications submitted via FACTS and are only able to review complete applications. Applicants may begin the application, save, and log back in at a later date to upload their income documentation prior to the 11:59 p.m. deadline on April 15th.
    • Returning awarded families do not need to attach docs to verify income. This just changed last year!
  • We will again prioritize awards for returning students. We encourage any family who qualifies and is interested in a scholarship to apply. We will accommodate as many additional awards as we are able.
  • We do not award scholarships to students in Pre-K in Missippi.
  • We will not provide scholarships to exceed 25% of a school’s enrollment.
  • As a reminder, during the application season, please utilize (and encourage your families to utilize) our help center, support email & phone line (856) 746-6521 to ask questions of our team as any one of us is able to respond in times of high volume! 

We look forward to helping support you and your families during this application process!
