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 Opportunity Scholarship Program is the subject of lawsuits now pending before the North Carolina Supreme Court. The Opportunity Scholarship Program staff has been authorized to prepare for the 2015-16 school year but cannot disburse funds without further order of the Court.
Current Opportunity Scholarship recipients (2014-15) should log on to the Opportunity Scholarship Portal to complete a renewal application. To apply for the Opportunity Scholarship for the first time, complete an Opportunity New Student Application. Students who have not received an Opportunity Scholarship are new students, even if a sibling is already an Opportunity Scholarship recipient.
