Students Return to School This Fall with a Scholarship from NOSF

Special to The Truth

The Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund announced last week that they have awarded a total of 450 K-8 scholarships including 76 new scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year.  These students are attending 66 different private schools or are being homeschooled.  

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 percent 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 Christ the King, Emmanuel Christian School and Maumee Valley Country Day.

Students can receive up to $2,000 per year for tuition or $750 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 also awarded sixteen $2,500 renewable high school scholarships for NOSF eighth grade graduates for private school tuition. These students are attending St. Francis de Sales, St. Ursula, Monclova Christian Academy and others.

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."

Interested families can find more information about the program and apply online on the NOSF website at 
www.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.
