EdChoice Scholarship Program updates



The third and final scholarship payment for the 2012-2013 school year was processed in mid-March and sent to schools by the end of March. Schools that have not received all of their scholarship payments should make sure that all attendance data has been entered for all EdChoice students and that all transfers for the current school year have been processed.

EdChoice had 16,556 applications submitted by the April 19 deadline of the first EdChoice application period for the 2013-2014 school year. Of this number, 3,049 are new applicants. The applications are currently being reviewed by the public school districts, which have until mid-June to complete their application reviews. Scholarship award letters will be mailed to parents in July.

Starting this summer, EdChoice will have a second application period each year. The second application period for the EdChoice Scholarship Program for the 2013-2014 school year will run from July 1-July 31. Students who meet the eligibility requirements, as well as students who failed to submit a renewal application during the first application period can apply during the second application period. The deadline for participating private schools to submit applications during the second application period is July 31. School districts will have until August 16 to review any applications submitted during the second application period.  Award letters for applicants of the summer application window will be mailed to parents in August and September. The list of eligible public schools for 2013-2014 is available on the EdChoice website
