JB Pritzker, Governor, State of Illinois

Deadline Dates

Each year, ISAC sets and announces a priority access to funding date by which both the Early Childhood Access Consortium for Equity (ECACE) Scholarship Program application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) must be completed and submitted.

The date for priority access to funding for the 2023-24 academic year is August 7, 2023. Untimely applications (i.e., those received after that date) will continue to be considered for as long as funding remains available after all timely, qualified applicants have been awarded. A notification will be sent to applicants after a final decision has been made regarding their award status.
