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 is July 15, 2022. Applications received after that date will continue to be considered for as long as funding remains available after all timely, qualified applicants have been awarded.

The 2021-22 ECACE Scholarship application is no longer being accepted. If you have been notified that your previously-submitted 2021-22 ECACE Scholarship application is incomplete, take the steps necessary to complete your application as soon as possible – this includes submitting the 2021-22 FAFSA if that has not yet been done.
