  • Scholarship Description
  • The Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarships program was enacted in 2011 and launched in 2013. The program gives individuals and businesses a 50 percent tax credit for contributions made to nonprofit organizations that provide school scholarships to students who meet the income and/or zoning requirements.

    For students without an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), scholarships may be worth up to $5,000, or 80 percent of the average per-pupil expenditure in the assigned public school district, whichever is greater. For students with special needs who attended a public school with an IEP, the scholarship is worth up to $25,000.

    Students are eligible if they either live in families with incomes up to 300 percent of the free and reduced-price lunch program ($134,589 for a family of four) or attend or live in the attendance zone of a public school designated as "in need of improvement." Once a student has received a scholarship, that student and his or her siblings remain eligible until high school graduation or age 21.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

While forty percent of 18- to 29-year-olds say they will "definitely vote" in the midterm elections, "doesn't mean they'll actually cast a ballot on Election Day." Here are a few of the issues in higher education on which voters will have a say: [...]
