JB Pritzker, Governor, State of Illinois

Deadline Dates

Each year, ISAC will set and announce a priority consideration 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.

For the 2022-23 academic year, the application priority consideration date was July 15, 2022. Untimely applications (i.e., those received after the priority consideration date) will continue to be considered for as long as funding remains available after all timely, qualified applicants have been awarded. Based on the fiscal year 2023 appropriation and projected application volume, ISAC anticipates that funds will remain to be awarded to eligible untimely applicants. A notification will be sent to applicants after a final decision has been made regarding their award status.
