Financial Aid

Bishop Ludden strongly encourages all parents to consider applying for financial aid. For our 2019-20 financial aid assessment process, we are once again collaborating with FACTS Grant & Aid.

Important Dates


FEBRUARY 15TH – Last Day to File to be Considered for Maximum Aid

To apply for financial aid, please visit If you prefer to submit a paper copy, please contact our controller, Mrs. Kathy Gilheney at (315) 579-0061. If you need help with filing, please contact FACTS Customer Care Representatives, at (866) 441.4639.

Our first and largest round of financial aid is TAP A, which is funded by the HOPE APPEAL. In order to be eligible for TAP A awards, families will need to complete their financial aid application and submit their supporting documentation to FACTS by FEBRUARY 15TH. Please note that financial aid applications must be submitted every year.

Supporting documentation can be scanned and uploaded or faxed (866.315.9264) to FACTS. Supporting documentation should include:

  • Copies of parent’s 2018 OR 2017 tax return – include all supporting tax schedules
  • W-2’s for the parent (and spouse if applicable) from either 2018 OR 2017
  • Copies of Social Security income, child support, food stamps, worker’s compensation and TANF (if applicable)
  • Processing fee

The processing fee for each application is $30 per family. Once a parent applies, they can log into their FACTS account to check the status of their application, and FACTS will provide bi-weekly follow-up communication to parents if their application is incomplete. There is NO additional fee if parents have children in two or more schools of the Syracuse Catholic Diocese.
