EdChoice Scholarships

What is the EdChoice Scholarship?

The EdChoice Scholarship (OEC) is a state-funded school choice option that assists families with the cost of private education. Every Ohio K-12 student in the State of Ohio is now eligible for an OEC Scholarship for the 2023-2024 school year. The scholarship amount varies based on a family’s income.

What are the OEC Eligibility Requirements?

The 2023-2024 EdChoice Scholarship amount is determined by a family’s income level and household size.

A family whose income is not more than 450% of the federal poverty level (example: a family of four with income of $135,000) would qualify for the full scholarship amount of $8,407 (grades 9-12) or $6,165 (grades 6-8). The scholarship amount is gradually reduced as a family’s income exceeds the 450% threshold.

Use your household Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) from your 2022 tax return to determine your maximum per-child scholarship amount in the chart below.
