Opportunity Scholarships andChildren with Disability Grant Programs

Opportunity Scholarship & Disability Grant Programs

The Opportunity Scholarship Program (OSP) expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in kindergarten through 12th grade. This program has historically provided funding of up to $4,200 per year for eligible children who choose to attend a participating nonpublic school. All Opportunity Scholarship applications that meet the income eligibility criteria are submitted as directed by the program.  

The Children with Disabilities Grant Program (CDG) was created by the North Carolina General Assembly to help parents cover approved expenses for children with disabilities who attend school in an eligible nonpublic setting.

For more information about the either program, please read the following document:
