Opportunity Scholarship Families

 

Welcome

Congratulations on being selected to receive an Opportunity Scholarship for the 2024-25 school year! See below for important information about your scholarship offer, deadlines, and responsibilities.

 

Accept or Decline Your Award

You will have a deadline to accept or decline your student’s award in MyPortal. If you have multiple children who received an award offer, you must respond to each separately.  For assistance on how to accept or decline an award, see the short video provided below. The slide tutorial “After an Award: What are the next steps?” contains instructions on how to respond to an award offer, choose a school, complete income verification, and find out how and when your student’s scholarship funds are sent to their school.

Renewing Your Student’s Scholarship

Beginning in late January, students who used scholarship funding the previous Fall 2023 semester will receive an offer to renew their scholarship for the 2024-2025 school year.

If your student will receive scholarship funding for the Spring 2024 semester only, then you will receive an offer to renew your student’s scholarship later in the semester.

Families will have until July 1st to respond to their renewal award offer. Be sure to check your notifications in MyPortal weekly and respond to required tasks by the deadline.

For more information see “Renewal vs. New Student: What’s the Difference?”

Transferring Schools

A student’s Opportunity Scholarship funds can only be sent to two Direct Payment Schools per semester. The amount of funding that can be sent to the new school depends on the number of weeks the student attended the previous school.

Follow these directions to transfer your student to a different school.
