What is the EdChoice Scholarship?

Students who live in the boundaries of an underperforming public school can apply for an EdChoice Scholarship. The Ohio Legislature recently updated how the Ohio Department of Education calculates the list of underperforming schools. The updated list will be available by March 2, 2021. 

Students in families at or below 250% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for an EdChoice Scholarship regardless of where they live. Income verification is required.

Students who were eligible for a traditional EdChoice for the 2020-21 school year are also eligible for a scholarship for the 2021-22 school year.

After determining eligibility, you must find a participating private school.

Students must apply to the private school, then apply for the scholarship through the private school.

You will need to renew your child’s scholarship through your private school every year.

EdChoice Scholarship Applications for income-based applications are now open!

EdChoice Scholarship Applications for students in underperforming schools will open March 2, 2021.
