EdChoice Expansion Scholarship – Application Steps
Step 1: The EdChoice Scholarship Request Form needs to be submitted to the Front Office along with a copy of the student’s birth certificate and proof of address (more than one student? Each student needs their own application). In order to receive the EdChoice Expansion Scholarship, this step must be completed. The form is attached.
Step 2: Complete the Income Verification Process. This gets submitted through the EdChoice Scholarship Income Verification Portal. In order to receive the EdChoice Expansion Scholarship, this step must be completed. There is a “Quick Guide” attached to help you navigate this step.
As part of HB 33 that was signed into law by Governor DeWine on July 4th, funding is available for families throughout the entire state to decide for themselves where their child should be educated. The idea being that all students should have a choice of their school even though they might not have the same financial level. EdChoice is providing scholarships to meet the cost of tuition based on the chart below. There is funding for all families, all levels of income. In order to receive this funding, it is necessary to complete Step 1 and Step 2 as explained above.
The application window for EdChoice will open up on Monday (July 17, 2023). Applications can be submitted on Monday, if the school has all the needed information. The window for new applications will close on October 14, 2023.
You can drop off the EdChoice application to the Front Office (see hours below), mail to school or email as a PDF to email@example.com.
