Need-Based Scholarships Are Available for Private Schools
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
