Scholarship Application and Information

Scholarships are awarded to students based on highest financial need, funds raised, and the metrics in the Education Tax Credit law for tuition for a NH private school (listed here), a NH public school outside of the student’s district or for homeschooling expenses.

Are there any current limitations?
If you are applying for a scholarship that you wish to use for your child's tuition at a religious school, we have appealed a discriminatory lower court decision to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. The lower court decision prohibits us from awarding scholarships for use at religious schools. We do expect to win as the US Supreme court has already ruled education tax credits constitutional but we are waiting for the decision. By applying now, you help us illustrate the need for these scholarships to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
Who is eligible?
You must be a New Hampshire resident.
You must have a child/children between the ages of 5 and 20 who has not graduated from high school.
Your income must not exceed 300% of the federal poverty level.
