Opportunity Scholarship Program

                     The Opportunity Scholarship Program expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in kindergarten through 12th grade. This program provides funding of up to $4,200 per year for eligible children who choose to attend a participating nonpublic school.

NEW APPLICANTS: The application for 2016-17 is available here: Opportunity Scholarship New Student Application (2016-17).

All Opportunity Scholarship applications that meet the income eligibility criteria and are submitted by midnight on March 1, 2016 will be entered into a lottery. Recipients are randomly selected from that pool of applications. For more information about the Opportunity Scholarship, read the Program Overview and the Frequently Asked Questions.

RENEWALS: Current recipients renew for the 2016-17 school year on the Opportunity Scholarship Student Portal. Renew by March 1.
