Need-Based Scholarships Are Available for Private Schools and Homeschool

The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund (NOSF) is accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year for
need-based scholarships for grades Kindergarten through eighth worth up to
$1,500 for children to use at a nonpublic school or $500 for homeschool
expenses.  Families need to reside in Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie,
Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland,
Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood or Wyandot Counties.

NOSF is a partner with the Children's Scholarship Fund and awards need-based
scholarships to provide parents with a choice for their child's education.
The Children's Scholarship Fund was founded in 1998 by the late Ted
Forstmann and the late John Walton who saw a need for educational
alternatives for families.  

Since 1999, the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund has awarded a total of $13.2
million in scholarships to 15,400 students, part of that includes $4.5
million in matching funds.  All funds raised locally by NOSF are matched by
the Children's Scholarship Fund and are used for scholarships in NW Ohio.  

The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund is the only privately funded need-based
scholarship program in Northwest Ohio that awards scholarships to children
who otherwise might not be able to afford private schools for kindergarten
through eighth grade and who do not qualify for an Educational Choice
Voucher.  Eligible families are required to demonstrate their financial need
as measured by standards similar to the Federal School Lunch program.

Interested families can find more information about the program on the NOSF
website at  <http://www.nosf.orgwww.nosf.org and apply online
https://tinyurl.com/NOSF19AP.  For more information please contact Northwest
Ohio Scholarship Fund at (419) 720-7048.  Deadline to apply for the
2019-2020 school year is Friday, April 26, 2019.
