We need to send this email to state legislators today.

Dear BOOST Scholarship Parent-Recipients, make your voices heard!

I implore you, as a parent whose own child is thriving in college as a BOOST recipient-graduate, as well as an advocate that is passionate about the program and helped numerous other parents apply, to join us in the fight to keep BOOST funded and available for future generations of students.

Maryland BOOST is currently funded at $10 million. The return on investment in kids through these programs cannot be understated. I know this as a parent and know many of you do too. Please help us in having our voices heard!

Thank you,

Nefertari Lee BOOST Coalition Parent Coordinator



The BOOST application will be available from March 9, 2022, at noon through April 29, 2022, at 11:59 PM.  

All families who received a BOOST award for the 2021-2022 school year will receive an email with the information to access the application system.

Families that are not currently receiving a BOOST Scholarship but would like to apply, the instructions are available on the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) website.

This is the link to the information:

Parents must upload their applications and complete federal 1040 tax form for the 2021 tax year.

Thank you for your support of Maryland's nonpublic schools' programs.
