Scholarship Application and Information

 
The Network for Educational Opportunity (NEO) provides scholarships for students who are struggling in their current school to allow them to attend a school that is a better fit for them and their learning needs.
 
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 applied for a scholarship that you wished to use for your child's tuition at a religious school, we appealed a discriminatory lower court decision to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
 
The lower court decision prohibited us from awarding scholarships for use for tuition at religious schools.

As of our July 15, 2014 notification deadline with the NHDOE, we had not heard from the NH Supreme Court thus we could not award scholarships for tuition at religious schools this 2014-2015 school year.
 
The 2015-2016 application will be available here on January 1, 2015
