Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)


Legacy of Grace – Student Tuition Organization (LOG-STO)

  • Tuition grants are given to students living in households with income that does not exceed an amount equal to 3x the federal poverty guideline for their family size. The LOG-STO Application is available each spring in March with a deadline of April 30th. LOG-STO tuition grants will be applied to the next school year. We encourage all families to apply, even if you think you may be over the 3x household income level as the final threshold for that limit could change.  Since we are uncertain, we are encouraging ALL families to apply.
