The Empower Illinois Scholarship application process for the 2019-2020 school year opened on Tuesday, January 15th at 7:00 p.m.  The application is a two-part process. Part one is a brief reservation form which will timestamp applications. Parents will go to to access the reservation form to begin the application.  Only 1 reservation form is required per family, even if you are applying for several students.  Submitting this form will timestamp your reservation.   Beginning Friday, January 18, families who completed part one will receive an email to access part two in their empowerXchange portal. Part two is when they will upload household and income documents, and complete the full application. Empower Illinois encourages families to submit their applications before January 28, 2019, to have the best chance of receiving a scholarship.

              If you have questions, you may contact the parent hotline (309) 416-0741 or  The regular parent hotline hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.
