Opportunity Scholarship Program

What is the Opportunity Scholarship Program?

The Opportunity Scholarship Program expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in Kindergarten through 12th grade. This program provides funding of up to $4,200 per year for eligible children who choose to attend a participating nonpublic school.

The 2019-20 new student application for the Opportunity Scholarship Program opens February 1, 2019. The priority deadline is March 1, 2019. The application will close August 1, 2019. Applications for eligible students received in June and July will be considered for awards in October if funds remain for 2019-20 at that time.
