EdChoice Scholarship: Information for Providers

NOTE: The application system includes a field with selected school buildings that were on the EdChoice scholarship list for the 2019-2020 school year. Under recently enacted legislation (House Bill 197, 133rd General Assembly, effective March 27, 2020), there may be limited circumstances in which a student is eligible based in part on the school buildings included on the EdChoice scholarship list for the 2020-2021 school year. If a school building selection for your student is unavailable and you believe your student is eligible for a traditional EdChoice scholarship, manual entry by Department staff may be required to enter the application into the system. If your student’s school building is unavailable in the system, please email edchoice@education.Ohio.gov. The Department will work with you to ensure that your student’s application is uploaded. Please also call us at (614) 728-2743 with any questions or difficulties with the application system.
