Every family now qualifies for the Universal EdChoice Scholarship!

ALL families in Ohio now qualify for the EdChoice Scholarship! It is estimated that 82% of all families in Ohio will qualify for the full scholarship and the remainder will all qualify for a partial scholarship!


Scholarship amounts are income-based for students in K-12. Students whose family’s adjusted gross income (line 11 on your federal tax form) is at or below 450% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), or about $135,000 for a family of four, will be eligible to receive the full scholarship amount, and students whose family’s household income is above 450% FPL are eligible for a partial scholarship on a sliding scale.  


You can use the tables on this page to determine your scholarship amount.
