Sonlight Curriculum Grant

Two years of Sonlight curricula means at least two History/Bible/Literature [formerly, “Core”] packages and/or packages that include History/Bible/Literature or Core packages (i.e., for example, what used to be called Sonlight Multi-Subject Packages or, currently, Sonlight All-Subjects Packages). Students interested in applying for the grant must submit a complete application for admission to Gutenberg College before February 15. Students must enroll full-time at Gutenberg College within two years of completing high school to be eligible for the four-year renewable* $500 grant.
