Need-based Scholarships Awarded for Students to Attend a Private School

The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund has announced this week that they have awarded a total of 620 scholarships including 108 new scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year.  The eligibility scale for these scholarships is based on the National School Lunch Program and all
of the families receiving the scholarship are at the 270% poverty level or below.

The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund (NOSF) provides privately funded scholarships to students from low-income families in grades K-8 to attend a private school such as Regina Coeli, Emmanuel Christian and Lial Catholic School or for homeschool expenses.

Students can receive up to $1,500 per year for tuition or $500 for homeschool expenses.  Families must reside in Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood and Wyandot and are required to pay a minimum of $500 towards their tuition.  

NOSF has been awarding scholarships since 1999. Deb Gehring, whose family has been in the program since 2011 and has three children using the scholarship this year, said "if not for NOSF my children would not have been able to attend Christ the King School in Toledo."  (pictured below)

Interested families can find more information about the program and apply online on the NOSF website at  <
http://www.nosf.orgwww.nosf.org.  Once awarded, families can renew their children's scholarship each year if they meet the income eligibility requirements and can also add siblings.  For more information please contact Ann Riddle, Executive Director of the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund at (419) 720-7048.

NOSF is a partner with the Children's Scholarship Fund (CSF).  CSF provides scholarships to families in need so they can choose the private school that best meets their children's needs.  Every dollar raised locally gets matched by CSF which provides additional dollars for scholarships.  Since the program began, more than 180,000 students have been awarded a CSF Scholarship nationwide.
